Aussie slang has a long and honourable history. From the convict days to the present day, we have excelled in the put down, the humorous summing up, the effortless jibe that leaves the target lost for words...

From 'blind as a welder's dog' and Bob Hawke being 'like a greased snake on an oiled floor' to 'two stubbies short of a six pack' this book is a collection of true gems of the Aussie idiom.

Peter FitzSimons - Australia's greatest storyteller - and his son Jake have compiled this selection, a compendium of true riches. Peter has long been a teller of our national stories, and in this book he presents the essence of Australian-ness.

From 'short arms and deep pockets' (a mean person) to those who 'run like a hairy goat' - there's something here for everyone. The perfect gift for Father's Day!
