Funny Australian Observation O’ The Day: Aussie newscasters pronounce the word “debut” as “day-boo”. That cracks me up.
Oh, since the Super Bowl is coming up, here’s a sports-related bit of trivia. In Australia, the word “root” has a very, very different meaning. In fact, it’s a very vulgar and rude word for “having sex”. Which is why the Aussies spent the entire last Olympics giggling at Americans “rooting” for their teams. (I won’t even tell you what “fanny” means here, but suffice it to say that the mere mention of a “fannypack” sends Snookums into fits of laughter.)
