It's everywhere.

Coke != all soft drinks.
NOS != nitrous oxide.

Sarcasm must not translate...


Why do you fuck a sheep on the edge of a cliff?





















So it pushes back.

Kiwi's are not exempt from the brand name thing either, for example....


Adjustable Wench (USA)= Shifter (Aus) = Crescent (NZ)

Also, bandaids.

I laugh at the coke thing. It's a soda, or to be specific, the name of the brand. Not Coke or Pop lol.

I call them crescent wrenches too, hardly ever do I call them adjustable wrenches, but it seems like most others here do. I've never called them shifters though LOL.

And this whole time I thought we all spoke the same language LOL. Let's get England in here too and see how crazy it gets LOL.

I've never heard of them being called shifters either until I moved here to Australia.

A colleague recently said "pass me a sheefter" and I was like.....wtf?


Chilly bin = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooler

It's a shifter get over it. And yanks don't even count, they call bonnets "hoods" and boots "trunks". Also have never heard people refer to all soft drinks as coke.

Yep, hoods and trunks, because that's what they are! Bonnets, boots? Shifters?! Sheesh.

LOL

You've never heard them called cokes because you're not in the US haha. I don't do that because it's ridiculous to me, but its' pretty common here. Either calling everything a Coke, or calling it a Pop. To me it's either a soda or Dr. Pepper or whatever brand it is. I always kid people here that call them cokes or pops.

I never understood the pop terminology. I assume it is in reference to the sound a can makes when opened or maybe the old school pop tops....that's all my reasoning can come up with. Of course either one of those terms expands the number of things of what it could be referring to. Maybe I'll just start calling twist top sodas hissers or something and see if it catches on

For our American friends info "Fanny" is a word used only by sheila's, NOT blokes.
