Jesus Christ I might be having a stroke!!!

I can't read English anymore.

I mean it all looks like English words, and seem to be in a proper sentence format, yet I can't make heads or tails of it.

Should I be seeking medical attention?

Must be fairly recent lingo among Australians, because Hitler never talked like that.

Much like "Yahoo Serious Film Festival", I understand the individual words, but not the order that they were spoken in.

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've read the article and comments and I still have no idea what it was about.

Google translate doesn't seem to work with the Australian language.

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

If the average Aussie can't understand what we are talking about, how's youse poor old Seppos gunna handle it, eh?

OK, now you're making it up.

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...

sjdaman: 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.

From watching the video, you appear to have to be wearing a silly costume as we.


As we? AS WE WHAT? DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING!
