So you chug a beer and show it to your friends? Is that it? I thought you were cool, Australia.

Yeah I watched the videos and it looks like it all translates to "chug one beer"
 
2014-01-10 11:38:23 PM  
So basically it's chain (video)mail.

You skol a beer, video it, then 'dob' or nominate the next person that has to do it. Rinse. Repeat.

When I lived there, dobbing on or dobbing in someone meant telling on them, ie reporting them to the authorities.

I'm not sure how that applies here.  It was...sweet fark, 25 years ago.  I think the language has evolved since then, or the Victorians in this article don't speak my Queensland slang.
 
2014-01-10 11:58:58 PM  
Australian guy here. Let me translate for you seppos.

<b>The new trend that encourages friends to skol a beer, film it, then dob in their friends has swept social media in the past week. </b>

The latest fad on social media is to film yourself, chug a whole beer in one go and at the end of the video nominate a friend to do the same thing.

if you don't do it, a drop bear will come and eat you in your sleep.

The "nek" part of neknominate comes from the meme "nek minnit". Google it for further info.
 
2014-01-10 11:59:36 PM  
At least they aren't cold cocking defenseless people for fun, as far as I can tell.
If they want to put dip in their beer and then puke on their friends, I'm OK with that.

2014-01-11 12:03:31 AM  

mediocretaur: so the Australians figured out how to chug a beer?


Oh we've got it figured.

In 1955 Bob Hawke downed 2 and a half imperial pints in a record 11 seconds. He later became prime minister.

6 years later a law student in Queensland broke the record by downing 2.6 imperial pints in 7.9 seconds.

In 1989 David boon (cricketer) drank a record 52 cans of beer on a flight to London.

I'm pretty sure that 'shrimp on the barbi' refers to when a really diminutive Aussie guy gets carried around by a Barbara Streisand impersonator.

2014-01-11 12:36:30 AM  
Fine, as an Aussie, I'll translate. 'Boot' = trunk. A Schooner is 425ml - its a measurement only used in NSW and QLD (2 states of Aus), the rest of us use imperial measures; pints (568ml/20 ounces) and pots (284ml/10 ounces). Not sure when it started being spelled 'skol' rather than 'skull'...

That's the 2nd time Bob Hawke (former PM, Rhodes scholar, PhD in Economics, former head of the trade unions) has skulled a beer in front of a cricket crowd recently. He's 82 btw. And a farking champion.

The game is - you skull a beer, which in Victoria means a pint, in NSW and Queensland a schooner - and then nominate the next person to do so. If they fail to do so... well, they get shiat for the rest of the night, or perhaps something more elaborate, depending on who's playing.

The article seems to be suggesting that young people are drinking irresponsibly. Something their parents would NEVER have done of course... I know, I'm ashamed too...

Incorrect use of the word "dob" in that article. To dob you in means to grass you up.  It does not mean nominate.

sjcousins: In 1989 David boon (cricketer) drank a record 52 cans of beer on a flight to London.


IIRC, by doing so he beat the record of Rod Marsh (cricketer) from the 1981 Ashes Tour. Marsh had passed out by the time they landed at Heathrow Airport so his best mate, the legendary fast bowler Dennis Lillee, had to wheel his drunken sleeping arse through airport customs on a trolley.

Marsh made a point of waking up early the next morning. When Lillee and the rest of the jet-lagged Australian cricket team came down for breakfast they found Marsh sitting at the hotel bar sipping on an early-morning "hair of the dog" beer.

Australia won the first Test of the six match series and drew the second. In the third Test at Leeds Australia had England absolutely farked by the end of the third day of play, and were on the verge of going 2-0 up in the series. For a joke, Marsh and Lillee visited one of the betting tents at the ground and put a small troll bet on England winning (from a virtually unwinnable position) at 500-1 odds. They ended up giving the thousands of pounds they won to charity.

England's Ian Botham proceeded to smash an amazingly unlikely unbeaten innings of 149 runs, and Australia lost the game by 18 runs and went on to lose the series, and the Ashes, due to more Botham heroics. To this day that series is called "Botham's Ashes". Fark Ian Botham.

Agreed, dob was used way out of it's normal context.   I can see it stretching to "nominate" in certain circumstances, (e.g., "Bruce is the only one who hasn't chugged yet!  It's his turn!" = dobbing Bruce in) but I was definitely expecting some weird trend of dobbing in your mates to the coppers.

Skol, however, is correct.   Normally spelt skull or scull, but it should indeed be skol.

A Swedish friend tells me that the traditional toast, "Skol!", comes from the Vikings.  It means "skull", as in the charming custom of relaxing after a hard day of pillaging by drinking your alcoholic beverage of choice from the split skull of your enemy.

Aussies have nothing on the Swedes.

I can't really work out this "dob" thingo. The closest I can come to is that they meant "dibs", as in having first dibs on something, which makes little sense but more than "dob" does.

With skol, skull and scull, I was always under the impression that we called it "skolling" based on the Scandinavian term "skal", meaning the "cheers" salutation, and we just pronounced it and spelled it incorrectly as "sculled" (now "skulled"), but I have yet to find a credible source for the etymology.
