I thought it was pure queenslander lingo to finish every sentence with a question?
Hey?

borealis 11th April 2015 02:03 AM

Canadians are reknowned for ending many statements with an eh? query. "Nice day, eh?"

ETA: We did send a whole slew of Nova Scotians to Australia sometime in the 1800s. I'm sure they added something to the regional accents, but can't recall where they went geographically atm.

MSG 11th April 2015 02:15 AM

some of them must have gone to New Zealand eh?

borealis 11th April 2015 02:21 AM

They did, yes.

There was a bunch from Pictou, I think, went to New Zealand, eh?

it started out with hairy scrotums, could hardly expect anything less...


hey Nazi's what is the plural of scrotum? scrotii?

MSG 13th April 2015 08:25 PM

scrota, I would have thought

Brother Daniel 13th April 2015 08:27 PM

"scrota" is right, but "scrotums" is also acceptable, according to Webster.

borealis 13th April 2015 09:27 PM

I don't think I've ever had the need to refer to them in the plural.

(borrowing: innocence and light)

Bless my giant hairy scrotum! One Nazi, two Nazis, no apostrophes. For examples of apostrophe use with male National Socialists and their genitalia try the following sentences.

That Nazi's scrotum is loose.
These Nazis' scrota are tight.

Adenosine 13th April 2015 09:57 PM

Wouldn't they be scroto because they're male? Feminine words are ended in "a".

Dionysus 13th April 2015 10:03 PM

Bollo

there was a stupid mickey take of In The Ghetto back in the day, by some Saturday night TV duo, where a kick in the balls was rendered "In the Bollo". Another one of those go-to references of mine. You have a knack of finding them (or I happen to have an awful lot more than the average -- probably a lot of both).
