Israel and America are fighting the good fight for you and me! *cough* w@nkers *cough*

It reminds me of the hippy saying from when I was a nipper - Fighting for peace is like ****ing for virginity!

Couldn't help meself lads....hadta reply to getting told off about calling seppo's,seppo's


Hi Koffee, unless you are able to interpret the following on your 1st reading, I'd suggest that you aren't qualified to make any assertion as to what is or isn't meant by any australian colloquialism. I'd suggest that if anyone has complained of being offended, its just that they haven't taken the time to find out what is meant by the term. BTW, all of the language, phrase etc are included in the 'Dinkum Dictionary' & 99.9% of all australians will understand every word. just because you don't doesn't make it offensive.


Fair suck of the savaloy, koffee, I nearly fell over backwards when I gotcha PM. Calling you seppo’s, seppo’s ain’t havin a go atyas. Before ya give me the bums rush, I reckon ya have more front than myers, having a whinge about the way we are dinky di. I reckon some dingaling has dobbed me in, but I reckon ya shoulda done some homework before doing the dirty on me.

Fair dinkum I wonder whether you seppo’s ave a couple of ‘roos ’s missing from the top paddock . This is about as serious as a ***** at a christening…you cannot be ridgy-didge…Wouldn’t this rip the crutch out of your nightie?. Geez koffee, sure we lairise sometimes but I don’t reckon we deserve a kick in the kyber for using words that’s as Ozzie as a pink Ostrich on a Satdee night telly show. I’m bending over backwards to get ya to give us the benefit of the doubt & it’d be bonza if ya bung on the billy & we’ll have a bit of a natter before ya make a mountain out of a mole hill . I don wanna make a rod for me own back ere & start off on the wrong foot, but before I hit the frog I’ve just gotta let cha know that I reckon this’s got whiskers on it & it nearly makes me wanna chunda, fair dinkum, I could do without drivin the porcelin bus today cos I had the dry horrors when I got up this morning, boy was I butchers!I reckon you’ve been sucked in by some bloke with an axe ta grind & I’m getting the rough end of the pineapple ere cos I don’t yak with a plum in my mouth.So while I strap on some nosebag, praps ya could consider that I may as well be shot for a sheep as a lamb so I hope ya chooks turn into emu’s & kick your dunny down cos I don’t reckon ya in the know about this & are just hopping on the bandwagon ta give us a hardtime. So it’d be a bit hoity toity of ya ta be on me back about this. Anyway I hope ya see the light at the end of the tunnel & see which way the wind blows before ya decide to jam me plums in a vice cos ya don’t know whether you’re Arthur or martha. Heres hoping ya do the right thing by me, up the ole’ red rooster & suck more p!ss
Cheers.

A very well considered response Hitchy.

You coulda gone Cheryl and laid the boot in, but you chose instead to take the path of the true blue. Here's lookin up yer kilt, hope they can see the light and allow to again roam free on the forums, with the term 'seppo' carried proudly in yer swag as part of your okker culcha.

Lucky for us you kept it short

And people from this place called 'New Zealand' that's like right next to 'New England', we all them.....OMG you're TOTALLY not going to believe this......."Sheep Shaggers!" Um....i don't know what a 'shagger' is exactly, but they pretend to get like TOTALLY p¡ssed at us........oh no, I've got a potty mouth! MY BAD! ......um.....they pretend to get all angry and stuff at us, and then they call us "Roo Rooters"!!! OMG it's soooooo FUNNY! Especially considering I don't even root for the 'Roos, I'm a Magpies supporter!

Predictions are again a bit lacking girls n boyz.

Robbie is in a bit of a pickle now, with a weakened team 'behind' him and a yellow jersey contender fighting for their services. I'm going for Zabel, Oscar, then Robbie ahead of Tom and a bunch of other likely culprits.

agree...I think it became clear last night, when the chase for a high GC & the green jersey clash, that Robbies gunna be pretty much on his own, I mean DVL made little effort to chase Oscar when he was threatening Robbies jersey. I still think Robbie will win the green, but Oscar's the main contender, not Tom

I kinda like the fact that Zabel, Bennati, and Hushovd are always going to be there stealing sprint points. As will other sprint nobodies who accidentally make it to the line.

Oh I see, apparently if I use Google, I can find out that they are some form of orthotic tool that the average tool can use to correct bad posture. Never seen 'em here in sheep shagger land (just near Noo England according to Hitchy.)

Could be useful for me as I have one leg shorter than the other by 8mm.

Yep, back in the day here if you wanted a beer you drank Lion Red or DB Draught (both 4%) out of quart bottles, but if you wanted to get chooked you got stuck into the steingrenades which was about the only 5% export beer hereabouts.

Nowadays you down vanilla and frangelico flavoured vodka shooters to get toasted.

... as opposed to the old days when we used to get drunk slurping a bottle of JD down one bellybuttonfull at a time. God I loved those dirty biatches. Sorry Mother Mitagi, it had to be said. Dunno why, just did.

WestEnd is fairly ordinary as well. In fact 'fairly ordinary' would be paying it a compliment. Word is it's bottled at the Glenelg Cattery.

How come SA has the two worst beers in the country and arguably the best as well (Coopers)?

I cannot condemn Kiwi beers. Wanaka beerworks make some of the tastiest sheit I've ever had, and if I just want some nice drinkin' beer that's clean and honest and not a super huge assult on the tastebuds, it's very tough to beat Monteiths Pilsner.

And don't get me started on 42 Below Feijoa Vodka! There's one for ya Matagi.
