I was having a chat with someone today who said I wonder what Jesus would say if he was an Australian. We joked around a bit, but the stream of thought fully remained and hence I thought I would write down a few of the terms I think Jesus would say if he was Australian.
- Come on mate!
- Fair dinkum!
- Bull shit!
- Get real!
- Those tall poppies couldn’t lie straight in bed!
- Don’t be shy! (This is used when someone opens a packet of chips or other, and doesn’t immediately share with others around them.)
- Have a go!
- You reckon!
- Listen up!
What are some of the terms you think Jesus would use if he was an Australian, or for my non Australian friends, what peculiar local terms do you think he would use if he was from your culture.
