    Loud, rude, obnoxious, yet generous to a fault. Uneducated or at least under educated, lazy, and self centered.

    Come on roomy, put everyone out of their misery and spit it out.

    And - of course - you have to acknowledge that while stereotypes have a grain of truth, national stereotypes are usually well off beam when you actually go to a nation and experience it.

    Excuse me Bruce, I've gotta grab another ice-cold Foster's but first I'm off to point percy at the porcelain, have a chunder, grab some tucker and plonk me arse in front of the telly to watch us beat someone yet again at the cricket :eusa_whistle:
