You Know You’re an Aussie If …

I recently came across this in my inbox, and found it rather amusing. See what you think.

You know you’re an Aussie if …

  • You believe that stubbies can be either drunk or worn.
  • You can translate “Dazza and Shazza played Acca Dacca on the way to Maccas.”
  • You think “Woolloomooloo” is a perfectly reasonable name for a place.
  • You’re secretly proud of our killer wildlife.
  • You feel it’s quite OK to have a $1 coin that’s twice as big as a $2 coin. 
  • You understand that “Wagga Wagga” can be abbreviated to “Wagga”, but “Woy Woy” can’t be called “Woy.
  • You believe all famous Kiwis are actually Australian, until they stuff up, at which point they again become Kiwis.
  • You shake your head in horror when companies try to market what they call “Anzac Cookies”.
  • You’ve drunk your tea/coffee/milo through a Tim Tam.
  • You know that roo meat tastes good, but not as good as barra. Or a meat pie.
  • Of course you have beetroot with your hamburger.
  • You know how to abbreviate every word, all of which usually end in -o: arvo, combo, garbo, kero, lezzo, metho, milko, muso, rego, servo, smoko, speedo, righto, goodo, etc.
  • You know about a place called “Woop Woop”.

But even some Aussies mightn’t have seen this:

Writing about the things that interest me helps me to discover what I think. One of my loves is the Australian Outback, and I travel out there often, and when possible take friends with me.

    I scored 9 out of 13. Does that make me an Ozzo rather than an Aussie?

    Never drunk my coffee or anything else through a Tim Tam…and would rather have the Barra than a meat pie… and I’d rather meet Dazza & Shazza at the WACA or the Gabba than Maccas (Yuk!!!) but the rest is pretty fair dinkum.

    The official mascot of the Digital Equipment Company Database Group was the wombat. When you typed in “Help Wombat” to the user interface, the answer came back: “A wombat is a small Australian marsupial that eats, roots, shoots, and leaves”

  4. Haha that photo is gold!

    I am definitely an Aussie. Yes to all of the above. I live in the UK and they ask me the strangest things but one of my favourites is ‘Are there really Dropbears that eat your face’ 🙂
