It’s an exciting time in America right now. Americans across the country have Aussie fever as a new Hollywood star has emerged with the release of Crocodile Dundee… Paul Hogan. One can hear Americans everywhere throwing out Australian slang – at home, at Outback Steakhouse, in the reptile house at the zoo, in the men’s lounge, at church, and at any given Subaru dealership. However, it seems no one is saying them correctly.
The most popular incorrect sayings we collected from our Army on the Street Team include:
– A baby ate my dingo
– Banana Fosters for dessert
– Throw another Barbie on the grill and place some shrimp out
– Do you come from a place down below?
– It’s a g’day to mate.
Well, apparently our Army on the Street Team only collected five sayings they overheard before going to the movies to watch Mr. Hogan again, but not before getting full as a goog on XXXX beer.
Maybe we should pay our street team. Nah.
