  • - All right first one, bathers.

  • Bathers,

  • is this like what you wear, its swimming trunks.

  • - Yeah, its like swimmers.

  • - Or like, I don't know maybe you're in a communal bath,

  • - No its not like a bather, like another person is a bather.

  • - Oh, okay so its, all right so bathers--

  • - No, a fellow bather.

  • [laughing]

  • - Yeah, I'd say a fellow bather.

  • - So I think that what this one means is like,

  • what do people say over here?

  • Like your swimming trunks?

  • - Swim trunks is very American to us.

  • It sounds like a cartoon to me.

  • - Yeah, we also say swimmers as well.

  • - Pretty straight to the point.

  • - Its always really tough when we have to say like,

  • bathing suit, that's the weirdest one for me.

  • I don't like that at all.

  • - No wukkas?

  • Or you could say no wucking furries.

  • [laughing]

  • - That is a good one

  • - No worries, no wakkas, no wukkas.

  • There's no problem here.

  • We have no issues with what is happening.

  • - Hakuna matata.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Oh, have a blue.

  • Oh, so have a blue, my dad would say this all the time,

  • if they get into a fight, and its called a blue,

  • so if you're like, maybe coming from the bruising

  • you'll receive from such blue.

  • I don't know, but my dad would always call that,

  • "aw yeah," if like football has got in a fight be like,

  • "yeah, they're gonna have a blue" or something.

  • - How do you know that one?

  • I didn't know that.

  • - That's good knowledge, Luke.

  • - Thank you.

  • - Give a bell.

  • I can only assume,

  • give a bell, does anyone know what this is?

  • - I don't know what this is.

  • Hold on, let me give it a google.

  • - I'm assuming,

  • - Wouldn't you just give someone a ring, calling them?

  • [all agreeing]

  • - I was saying, - Give someone a bell,

  • - Now, I should've known that.

  • - Did you call Tommy from down the street?

  • Because I've got his six pack of V-Bs, so give him a bell.

  • - Rug up.

  • - Rug up.

  • What are these?

  • I don't even know-- - I know what it is

  • - All right, go on then.

  • No, do you have a go? - I know what it is.

  • - All right, so this one basically means

  • if its cold outside, right?

  • If its cold outside, you rug up so put something on warm.

  • [laughing]

  • or like, grab your nearest rug.

  • It can be taken literally.

  • - Yeah that's good, - Is that right?

  • - Traditionally, say you've gone to you know,

  • your mum and dad, you've got a soccer game

  • on Saturday morning, its cold outside because its early,

  • and its you know, in winter or something.

  • "Oh mate, you gotta rug up before you go out there.

  • You're gonna catch a cold or something," I don't know

  • - I actually have heard that one before.

  • - Yeah great memoir.

  • - Yobbo.

  • - You bloody yobbo!

  • - Let the most yobbo man in the group take it away, Ashton.

  • - So am I technically a yobbo?

  • - Always have, always will be.

  • - Once a yobbo, always a yobbo.

  • - Does that mean I'm a bogan?

  • - Yeah pretty much.

  • - Synonyms are bogan.

  • - Derro.

  • - These are still all side notes.

  • [laughing]

  • - Yeah I picture him, case of V-Bs, he's got thongs on,

  • that's um, what do you call them here, flip flops?

  • And he's got maybe some Sydney Swans football shorts on.

  • No shirt-- - And he,

  • he doesn't like anything.

  • - Yeah, nothing.

  • - Not a fan. - Especially not you.

  • - I'm not a yobbo.

  • - [laughing] sounds like you're telling yourself that.

  • - Idiot box, seems pretty self explanatory.

  • I don't think I've ever actually heard this.

  • Or maybe I've been called it.

  • It just seems pretty straight to the point.

  • You are an idiot box.

  • - I thought, I thought it was a television.

  • - [laughing] oh.

  • - I googled it and actually does say TV,

  • but I've never even heard of it before.

  • - I've never heard that one.

  • - Well you wouldn't call someone an idiot box,

  • like a box idiots. - A box of idiots!

  • - Yeah, I guess I could see-- - I love this one!

  • [giggling]

  • - Legless, What is this?

  • - Lets get [beep] legless!

  • [laughing]

  • [beep]

  • - Yeah, no this, this means,

  • legless just means lets get absolutely [beep] up.

  • - Lets get waisted.

  • - Let get absolutely hammered.

  • - To the point that we can't stand up.

  • - Like so many beers, I can't even use my legs.

  • [laughing]

  • - Oh bloody oath.

  • This is one of mine--

  • - On the daily.

  • - This is one of my favorite Australian slag terms.

  • Basically its an agreeance.

  • Ashton, ask me something.

  • - Wouldn't you say the weather is spectacular today, mate?

  • - Oh bloody oath Ash, great point.

  • - [laughing] its just reinstating, hammering it home.

  • Bloody oath!

  • - Woop woop, oh I know this one! [laughing]

  • - So in the high school there was a type of person,

  • guy or gal, and you would call them a woop woop,

  • because they would do this to everything.

  • Its recess, or its lunch time, they would go,

  • "Woop woop!"

  • Or you know,

  • "Woop woop!"

  • [laughing]

  • I have a rebuttal one, maybe a second meaning.

  • That was the best thing ever.

  • - You called a guy a woop woop.

  • - Or you could kinda compare it to where we grew up.

  • So like you're city folk, you're talking to city folk,

  • and they live in the city and you're like,

  • "I came out from woop woop,"

  • [laughing]

  • Woop woop is a suburb which you don't name because they

  • wouldn't know where it is. - Its too far away.

  • - No ones ever heard of it.

  • - Its an undefined place, that just,

  • you don't know where it is.

  • And that's probably where the yobbos are from.

  • Hang out with the yobbos-- - All the yobbos

  • are from woop woop.

  • - The yobbos are legless in woop woop for sure.

  • - Oh bloody oath.

  • - Next one is shout.

  • All right, so I've taken a bet of stick for this.
