SOMETHING VERY EXCITING IS GOING TO HAPPEN ON SUNDAY

And by “something very exciting” I mean it’s something I’ve been working on virtually non-stop for the past month. This isn’t my 5,000th half-assed little project. This is a big, long-term Thing. And that Thing is going to start happening to the internet on Sunday.

But before that, I’m going to release one little tidbit of info about Thing every day. Get hyped.

TIDBIT 1: It’s a comic.

TIDBIT 2: These are the colors I’m coloring it with.

words I never realised are slang and not commonly used elsewhere in the world

  • Tramping
  • Jandles
  • Munted
  • Togs
  • Dairy
  • Bach
  • wop-wops
  • ta
  • Tki tour
  • Chocka
  • Dodgy
  • suss
  • stoked
  • sweet as
  • fuck all
  • she’ll be right

What do people say instead of ‘togs’ or ‘dairy’??

It took me like five years to explain the word “togs” to javier. He was like “why wouldn’t you just saw swimsuit”

also “canny” as in “canny with my money”.

they say swimsuit or bathing suit….and for dairy I think they just say ‘store’

Can someone please add a list of what those words would mean to a silly american such as myself

  • Tramping = Hiking
  • Jandles = flip flops
  • Munted = wrecked, ruined, fucked up
  • Togs = swim suit
  • Dairy = a small convience store
  • Bach = a small holiday house
  • wop-wops = middle of nowhere/most of the south island
  • ta = thanks
  • Tiki tour = a holiday with no destination. road trip
  • Chocka = really full ‘chocka full’
  • Dodgy = shifty or unreliable
  • suss = organise/work out
  • stoked =  to be completely and intensely enthusiastic 
  • sweet as = cool/awesome/alright a term of affirmative acknowledgement
  • fuck all = jack shit, nothing, less than nothing
  • she’ll be right = don’t worry it’ll be ok/eh close enough/ ah it’ll be fine/good enough/if it falls we’l just stick her up again

As it turns out it’s really freaking hard to translate slang you assumed everyone used

Some of these (dodgy, suss, stoked, fuck all) are reasonably common in America (or are at least close enough to American slang that I imagine most people could work it out.)

Nobody here would have any idea what “jandles” are, though, and “wop-wops” might get you punched if someone heard it out of context.
