    I have no "must have" on....

    So dear FTS - educate me! Tell me how Oi! differs from Oy! :confused2:

    Really, I do not know what the meaning of the "Oi" symbol is in Aussie slang, but would like to. :yes:

    I do speak southern american, though - and would be happy to translate should the need occur. :coolwink:

    Dialect is dialect and sometimes obscure to the uninitiated. :eyeroll:

    But we are all of the same bent. :thumbsup:

    Well done, Miss Withhold,

    Your handle is definitely in the top five best!

    I love things Australian! My hang glider is a Moyes mega made down-under, and I always say "g'day mate!" when I launch.

    I know you're asking FTS but I have some hands-on data regarding this;
    Most Aussies use "Oi!" because it amuses us and makes us feel like proper Bovver-Boys whilst we're cheering ourselves on.
    However, whenever I'm out with my Jewish-Aussie mates I tend to use "Oy!" because it always amuses the hell out of them! :D

    Since some of your number have "infiltrated" the Northern Hemisphere, what makes you sure you don't already? :coolwink:

    Oi oi oi is the kangaroo mating call. I'm not sure why Aussies use it so often and so loudly-a fact that could make one wonder a bit, not seriously, really, even though it is a big country with a widely dispersed population, probably with a lot of lonely nights and that sort of thing...but, let's just let it go. Better say nothing and appreciate their beer and the multitude of other Down Under contributions to humanity...a list that I'm sure can be compiled by someone, somewhere, sometime, with the proper investigatory mindset and access to that secret documentation buried under the Sydney Opera House. I mean, why else make a building so beautiful no one would want to tear it down?

    Welcome MW! :thumbsup:

    The Aussies and Yanks may have the numbers, but all the quality posting comes from the English. :whistling:

    Nex - have you taken leave of your senses?! :ohmy:
    Aussies have no idea what a real pint of beer is. :no:
    Drinking freezing-cold wallaby piss is not my idea of a good night out.

    Maybe it would be if you lived in Australia? :)

    freezing-cold wallaby piss is what we export over to the yanks..
    Its called Fosters.. I think Paul Hogan stated to sell it to you guys..

    You know, have some wallaby piss with your shrimp on the Barbe. (Barbeque)

    VB is the beer of choice. Gets you hammered after a few gun shots.

    Gun-shot: (you smash a small hole in the side of the beer can towards the base, put the hole to your mouth and lift the can high and open the lid. The beer shoots down your throat and a good night is upon you)

    Beware, side effects are puking and pregnancy.

    Oi Oi Oi or Oy Oy Oy, I think first came about in a Hewett Tennis match or the Commonwealth Games. Its our version of a mexican wave.

    Its a good sign that the crowd is drunk. It may also be a mating call..

    Aussies are the second easiest people in the world to love, after Hawaiians.

    Fortunately there are no kangaroos in Hawaii.

    Miss Withhold, Welcome to the forum.. Would love to hear about the people, staff and goings on in the Orgs. Are you Sydney or elsewhere?

    all this talk about mating with a kangaroo...

    I think if you are into that sort of thing you should head south to NZ for the sheep, they are a lot more easy on the eye and complicit.

    This is not even a big red, just a regular adult and not likely to be romantic with anyone.
