The original post may have been correcting Americans’ understanding of the British use of the word…. that rhymes with bunt and starts with c.
But it was soon hijacked by a number of true blue Australians.
One ocker bloke took it upon himself to explain the delicate cultural nuances of the Australian language.
“In Australia, being called a “mad c*nt” is the highest praise you can receive. However, if someone says “Listen, c*nt” they are probably about to hit you. It can be confusing for foreigners,” he said.
The term seemed to be a hot topic as other Australians weighed in on its possible interpretations and uses within our country.
“Let’s get realistic, in Australia that word is mainly used by ferals and bogans. It might get a few laughs on a stand up stage but in real life it will always be uncouth,” they said.
Just in case you needed further evidence of our cultural prestige. Post continues after video.
Another culturally-sensitive Aussie decided to weigh in on the great bumbag/thong debate.
“In Australia a bumbag is tied around the waist and sits on the bum. I don’t know how an American wears a fannypack because a fanny is a vagina. We also wear thongs on our feet but then we do apparently live upside down under the world,” they said.
