lolol..very good people!! But Z, you are disqualified as you had an unfair advantage over everyone else. You have to be an Ocker. Right?!!
You had a couple of Aussie terms in your reply, beauty was one of them.

OK, to clear some of the words/phrases up..

1/ Bit of a dag
A funny person, he or she makes you laugh. ( unfortunately, a dag is something that rattles on a sheeps behind if it has not been crutched)

2/ Crash Hot
Excellent!

3/ Crickey Dick
I dont know WHY all of you have been concerned at this phrase, it was Steve Irwin's favourite saying! It is an expression of surprise. I guess some people could have a concern knowing that now.

4/ Drop your Gear
Get undressed

5/ Get off the Grass!
Disbelief as in "get off the grass, he couldn't have sunk 25 tinnies in a sitting!"

Next question, what do you think this phrase implies:

" How much do you charge to haunt a 10 room house?"

Ooops....forgot to come back to this post.....

" How much do you charge to haunt a 10 room house?"

Is an insinuation that the person is physically unattractive.

Bit naughty really. I will say that I have never used that phrase but it does crack me up!!! I know, I need a humour check.

"I'm posting before reading any of the replies. Honest!!!!"

Good girl, close.
Some of the words have multiple meanings, depending on what you use them with and what for.

"Laughing Gear
-mouth" correct. Can sometimes mean get dressed up "get your laughing gear on and we'll go out"

We have so many slang words and sayings.
Try these.
"Dead horse"
"Durry"
"Grub"
"Hoo-roo"
"Idiot box"
"Flat out like a lizard drinking"

Well done Buckytom, idiot box = TV
dead horse = tomato sauce [ketchup to you]
durry = cigarette
grub = food
hoo-roo = goodbye
flatout like a lizard drinking = someone who is very busy

One more before Lynan gets out of bed
"Brickies cleavage"

Having friends from all over the world, I'm enjoying this. I think I'd have gotten about a half of them. Do you "shout" for rounds of drinks in bars in NZ? I cannot remember who it was who handed us drinks and said it was someone's "shout". Meant that an acquaintace had bought a round on the house. I cannot remember where he was from.
