lol @ datwasgreat,

“cheers mate” won’t make you sound ignorant.

“shrimp on the barbie” will! Most Aussies never saw the Paul Hogan (Crocodile Dundee) tourism commercial that started that. He originally said, “prawn on the barbie” but they changed it because they thought yanks wouldn’t figure it out. Irritates Aussies to no end when they hear it

When I first moved to Oz, I was north of Cairnes and a lady took me for a Canadian and I asked her if it’s because it’s insulting to Canadians to guess “American”…she said, “No, it’s because all the Americans that come through here are dressed like crocodile hunter”.
