I dont think you can lump aussies, poms, and south Africans in the same basket
Maybe Aussies and Kiwi's to the american eye
but we are quite different.

As far as Cunts

there is a world of difference to these two sayings

"you're a fucking cunt"
and "You're a fucking mad cunt"
One is a compliment and one an insult.
Only the Aussies and Kiwi's maybe the poms will know which is which



Mateship and looking out for the under dog is an in-ground concept in Australia and NZ
We have this mystical thing called the ANZAC spirit we are very proud of and strive to uphold any way thats my 2 bits
We have always punched above our weight in the military stakes eg the rats of tobruk long tan the battle of kapyong


This may help

Guys. Please let's keep this as a language and culture (or lack of) thread please. So no guns, politics or ethnic dislikes. It's supposed to be a fun thread about understanding our differences in language and culture (or lack of).

I don't know about the U.S. But it's not unusual for the Aussie ladies to thow the F and C word out in normal conversations. And we don't blink an eye when we hear it.

We all do just get along, that's the thing, in this day of micro aggressions and over sensitive sensibilities saying something nice, or opening up, to somebody else by actually insulting him (or her or ze) is a revelationary act.

What I lament is the loss of our bush and early language. So much unique Australian slang is disappearing. Poms I don't think have the same problem. What about you yanks? You finding you're loosing certain word and sayings unique to you?
