Who or what are they?

What kind of secured environment? (Secured - how?) (Environment - what environment?)

The more specific you are, the more specific an answer you will receive.

Otherwise, I'd just say, "BSD, properly configured".

Maybe it's some kind of gaol ...

In Americanese-Bastardized-English that would be JAIL.

only occasionally do I need to look these things up - mostly I have to look up localized idiomatic expressions which i just can't understand without any context (e.g., Jacky Howe ). Of course, Cockney Rhyming Slang would generally have to go through a translator. General spelling or noun substitution aren't much of a problem. Heavy accents which I've never heard before would probably do me in.

Someday, I may have to say, "Sorry, old man, we don't understand your banter." But not today. No NITS for me, thanks.

I still get a chuckle every time I think of Monty Python's

"Upper Class Twit Of The Year - Final!"

The contestants were:

# Vivian Smith-Smythe-Smith (portrayed by Eric Idle in MPFC and John Cleese in ANFSCD)

* Has an O-level in kennel hygiene
* Can count up to 4

# Simon Zinc-Trumpet-Harris (portrayed by Terry Jones in MPFC and Eric Idle in ANFSCD)

* Married to a very attractive table lamp

# Nigel Incubator-Jones (portrayed by John Cleese in MPFC and Terry Jones in ANFSCD)

* Best friend is a tree
* Stockbroker in his spare time

# Gervaise Brook-Hampster (portrayed by Michael Palin in both versions)

* Used as a waste-paper basket by his father

# Oliver St. John-Mollusc (portrayed by Graham Chapman in both versions)

* Said to be this year's outstanding twit.
* His father was a Cabinet Minister, and his mother won the Derby

Now I want to sit around and watch Python.
Some random keywords & phrases which come to mind:

Lake Pahoe
The Larch
Ethel the Aardvark Goes Quantity Surveying
Confuse a cat
Start again
Pantomime horse
Rotating knives
Mrs. S-C-U-M
"Two Sheds"
Adjust saddle!
My hovercraft is full of eels.
Gangs of vicious Keep Left signs
Could be taken on an holiday.
G'day, Bruce!
The twin peaks of mount Kilimanjaro
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!


I'd like to wrap this up by saying, "Australia, Australia, Australia, we love you! Amen!" Just for Jacky.

the Australian language bloke.

A woman with nice breasts = fargonebeautiesmate

I had to change the name when I was being referred to as fargon.


LOL I got the idea for the name after my mate Vinnie introduced me to a band that he was a roadie for. They are a great band and take the mickey out of a variety of songs.

Australian lingo is distinctly odd, for sure ...

It never fails to confuse me - particularly after someone has 'explained' it to me. :^0

I'll be checking out that band's site, thanks.

by seanferd In reply to You need to learn

I'd entirely forgotten your prior handle! Seriously, people were referring to you as "fargon"? Like fargon leghorn?

Really though, my memory of Aussie colloquialisms has gone Walkabout. I don't get as much exposure as I did in the '80s. A lot of it seems self-explanatory, but there is always some idiom I won't get even if the meaning is explained, so I'll have to look up the etymology. Of course, there is a lot of slang in the States that leaves me completely clueless as to why anyone would bother to use it at all! F'rinstance, do you know what the popular U.S. equivalent for your moniker (as used to describe a more generic version of the legendary Jacky Howe's shirt) is?
