Below is a dictionary which may or may not give reason and meaning to the nonsense words and phrases found throughout this blog.
Dandenong – South Eastern suburb in Melbourne where I went to school. It’s well known for its crime and delinquency rates and after the government announced a “baby bonus” payout to encourage population growth, it quickly became the teen mother capital of Victoria.
Ephelant – intentional misspelling of Elephant.
Good Onya – Australian version of “Good on you”, usually said with derision when you’ve done or said something stupid. Works best when rolled together as one word and finished off with a frown and one lip curled up.
Hazacazawhaaaa? – catchphrase of Jerry Blank from “Strangers with Candy”. No idea how many a’s are supposed to be in that. It means WTF?
Of the Nation – following any word ending in “tion” with the words “of the nation” just because it rhymes.
Oopsadentally – ok yes fine, it’s a nonsense word, but really, you couldn’t figure that one out?? You had to go to the Nonsnensical dictionary??
