People have been sharing things even Aussies don’t realise are uniquely Australian

One of the greatest things about being totally embedded in the culture and practices of a locale is that you don’t even realise that the things you’re doing might be seen as a bit unusual in any other context. For legends like us here in Australia, it’s fair to say we’ve evolved in our own special way. We don’t know whether it’s because of distance from the rest of the world or whether it’s just a fluke, but apparently, we’re a bit odd. Have a look.

Yeah, nah, we’re gonna be up front here and straight-up admit that we didn’t even know some of this s**t was uniquely Australian. In fairness, that might be because there’s a mistake here and the person claiming it could be wronger than a dingo’s donger. It could also be because the post’s spot on and we didn’t even know what we didn’t know!

Either way, we don’t reckon it matters too much. Yeah, nah, if it’s wrong, we’ll just f**ken carry on. Like the infamous Chopper Read once said, “You can’t let the truth get in the way of a good yarn.”

Still, some of this s**t is famously Aussie – like the Hills Hoist washing line – so it’s a bit rich to claim people don’t know, but whatever, we’re just gonna roll with it. And why the f**k not. We’ve invented tonnes of cool s**t here in Australia, like Wi-Fi, Plastic money, and even f**ken spray-on-skin.

That said, there’s plenty here we didn’t know about. Like lemon lime and bitters. If you c**ts don’t have that, you’re f**ken missing out. It’s a tasty beverage.

We can’t believe you c**ts don’t have lemon lime and bitters! Surely someone’s pulling our leg. Credit: like_the_grand_canyon

Electric drills were made here too. We know you’ve all got ’em now, but f**k we’re good. Credit: 30478819@N08

Final thought: There’s probably tonnes of s**t here we haven’t covered, and as we said above, that’s because it’s second nature to us. We wouldn’t even know what we’re missing. If you’re from overseas and you’ve spent some time here, f**ken point out our quirks and foibles in the comments section for us, will ya?
