That was good.

Good luck to anyone not Australian reading it though. I got most it but still had to seek clarification on a few points from an Aussie. Who knew clothes lines had a brand name. (Kiwi living in Oz for 4 years).

My hat is off to the authors, because I've never had such a strong sensation of hearing an Australian accent in my head as I did while reading that.

I can totally hear Elizabeth Bennet saying this:

MR COLLINS: Cousin Elizabeth.
ELIZABETH: Yeah, nah, mate.

Three short words, so much disdain.

I've pretty much decided that I never want to (or can ever even remotely afford to, to be fair) do international travel. But that said, I always kinda wished I could go to Australia because Aussies are that awesome.
I would totally watch P&P: Aussie Version.

I thought Stump was a weird party game until I learned the definition of Goon of Fortune in the comments...

Lived in apartments for most of the time so just had clothes horses or dryers. We have the same style clothes lines in nz but don't refer to them as hills hoists.

Bullshit turbid dahlia, it is bonza. (My workmates have stopped reacting to me saying 'bonza' in the office but still extract some mirth from 'rattle ya dags')

Thirding the pitch-perfect use of the Yeah, nah, mate.

Could've done with a reference to spadework though.
