New Aussie Slang!

This week, I happened to learn a few new Aussie phrases to add to my growing collection of Australian slang. Here they are:

“On your bike!” is an expression that is sometimes used instead of “Go away” or “Piss off”

guts is an adjective used to describe someone who is greedily eating too much food; for example, a parent might say to his/her child who is overeating, “Don’t be a guts.”

mudguts means diarrhoea; very different from the term “guts” on its own
