    @Marum and/or DnT and/or any other Ozzie here:

    What’s the diff between Ocker (Ochre?) and Strine?
    This is a serious, earnest Q.


  19. Eggrish | 12:07 pm |

    Car must be tired of being referred by the wrong pronouns!
    I’m “that”, you dingys!

  20. Droll not Troll | 4:50 pm |

    @Marum | 5:20 am: Have you been overdosing on haggis, mate? 😯

  21. Droll not Troll | 4:58 pm |

    @Pete | 8:40 am: An Ocker is a type of Aussie person, usually male, roughly our analog of a redneck.
    Strine is a broad Aussie accent, spoken by ockers and many other Aussies, e.g. Steve Irwin. “Strine” is how “Australian” can sound when they say it.

  22. Droll not Troll | 5:36 pm |

    Marum | 5:20 am: My apologies, mate! I just discovered that same Wiki entry. First one I’ve seen written in a Scots accent.

  23. Droll not Troll | 5:47 pm |

    @Pete | 8:40 am: Also, the nationality is spelled “Aussie”, although we often refer to the country as “Oz”. I can understand how someone who didn’t grow up here could have problems keeping it all straight.
    You may like to google Barry Mckenzie {fictional character) and Afferbeck Lauder (a pseudonym) which is how “alphabetical order” sounds in strine.

  24. Droll not Troll | 5:53 pm |

    I wonder – did they call it “That’s” because both the word and the car are contractions?

  25. Nonsuch Ned | 5:43 am |

    The contraction is actually “That was”, not “That is.” It refers to the roadkill.
    “That was a Cat”… “That was a turtle”… “That was a Racoon Dog”…

  26. Nonsuch Ned | 5:50 am |

    another one…
    “That was the older brother to a child that will now strive for excellence and be the ace pitcher in the Koshien… star striker of the national soccer champions… or Shogi grand master…. all in the name of his dearly departed sibling.”

  27. Pete | 7:37 am |

    @DnT and Marum,

    Thanks, mates. I was under the obviously mistaken impression I was talking about 2 different kinds of Australian accents. My fault.

    No offense intended when I wrote Ozzie instead of Aussie.

    So as i get it now, an Ocker is almost certain to speak Strine. correct?

  28. Droll not Troll | 4:12 pm |

    @Pete | 7:37 am: Correct.
    No worries about the spelling, it’s a common mistake.

  29. iLock | 8:22 pm |

    It sure is…

    That’s would be an ecumenical matter.

  31. seventy2rd o clock | 11:33 am |

    I prefer Toyota It’s

    ’tis so nostalgic . . . a carrier van for That’s cassette tapes:
