    Aussies say spag bol too.

    I know a few people have been a little confused by some of the Aussie slang I use, so I'll clarify some here....well at least everything I can think of off the top of my head!

    Macca's= McDonald's
    Flat battery = Dead battery
    Soft drink/Fizzy= Soda/Pop
    Mobile ( As in "I got a call on my mobile)= Cell phone
    Gone walkabout= Gone off somewhere

    That's all I can think of atm, if I think of anymore I will post! Or if anyone wants any Aussie slang translated, let me know!

    Ahh yes, thankyou! What the English and American's call Flip Flops, we call Thongs, and what you call a thong, we call a g-string.

    Jumper=Sweater
    Joggers/Runners= Running shoes
    Telly= Television

    A couple more for ya'll...
    "you're having a woolly-scarf / giraffe" (having a laugh - a bit of the old Cockney Rhyming Slang for you)
    "whatcha" - informal hello
    "spag-bol" - spaghetti bolognese
    "tasty crumpet" - a compliment aimed at somebody you fancy
    Tasty crumpet, I like it.
