Description

The hilarious dictionary of Australia's unique words and phrases. The most un-un-Australian dictionary ever created, The Strayan Dictionary is your indispensable guide to the native tongue of Warnie, Hawkie, Dame Nellie, Kylie (Minogue and Mole), Little Johnny, Barty and of course Boonie. More bonzer than a long weekend, as respectable as an underarm delivery and as easy to understand as 'yeah-nah-nah-yeah-nah', The Strayan Dictionary is guaranteed* to be as honest as a sickie, as useful as a beer snake and as unputdownable as a stubby, * This guarantee is a furphy (also defined within)
