The things that make us Australian

1 ) You've mimicked Alf Stewart from the TV show Home and Away's broad, Australian accent, eg. "push off, ya flamin' Drongo!"

2) You've had an argument with your mate over whether Ford or Holden makes the better car

3) You've done the "hot sand" dance at the beach while running from the ocean back to your towel.

4) You know who Ray Martin is

5) You start using words like 'bloody' and 'grouse' and call people 'champ'

6) You stop greeting people with 'hello' and go straight to the "how ya doin'?"

7) You've seriously considered running down the shop in a pair of Ugh Boots

8) you own a pair of ugh boots

9) You've been to a day-nighter cricket match and screamed out incomprehensibly until your throat went raw.

10) You kind of know the first verse to the national anthem, but buggered if you know what 'girt' means.

11) You have a story that somehow revolves around excess consumption of alcohol and a mate named 'Dave'.

12) You've risked attending an outdoor music festival on the hottest day of the year.

13) You've tried to hang off a clothesline while pretending you can fly

14) You've had a visit to the emergency room after hanging off the clothesline pretending you can fly.

15) You own a pair of thongs for everyday use, and another pair of dress thongs' for special occasions.

16) You don't know what's in a meat pie, and you don't care

17) You pronounce Australia as "Straya"

18) You call soccer "soccer, not "football"

19) You've squeezed Vegemite through Vita Brits to make little Vegemite worms.

20) You suck your coffee through a Tim Tam.

21) You realise that lifeguards are the only people who can get away with wearing Speedos.

22) You pledge allegiance to Vegemite over Promite.

23) You understand the value of public holidays.

24) Your weekends are spent barracking for your favourite sports team.

25) You have a toilet dolly

26) You've played beach cricket with a tennis ball and a bat fashioned out of a fence post.

27) You firmly believe that in the end, everything will be ok, and have told a mate in tough times that "She'll be right, mate"

28) You use the phrase, "no worries" at least once a day.

29) You've been on a beach holiday and have probably stayed in a caravan.

30) You constantly shorten words to "brekkie", "arvo" and "barbie"

31) You've adopted a local bar as your own.

32) You know the oath of mateship can never be limited by geographical distance.

Guilty of 2, 4, 5, 6, 12, 16, 18, 21, 23, 24 (I spose FPR counts), 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 32!

35) You think Rodney Rude would make the best PM- GG
whatever as the current mob are a pack of self serving
36) Your mates names are easily recognised but often confused-
Bazza, Tozza, Wozza, Muzz, Fuzz,Shags,Bob, Snoz etz
37) You prefer using the outhouse than a indoor toilet.
38) You enjoy getting drunk and going hunting at the same time.
39) The only time you get affectionate with your wife is if you
win big after the footy final, Bathurst or the local lawnmower
racing contest. Other times you just glad she cleans up after
you as she realies on you to do all the blokey things when
actually feel like it.
40) You think feminists just had one bad date too many.

and many more controversial ones I won't dare go into.

43) When your talking in a conversation and use slang then seeing the expression on people's faces saying

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!
