Australians are in an ongoing battle about how to say certain words
Australians speak weird. They even think each other speaks weird
The local lingo can change from state to state, suburb to suburb and it can turn into a full-on brawl if you accidentally drop the wrong term in the wrong location.
Take the term, “potato scallop” — favoured by those in New South Wales and Queensland — to describe the crispy battered potato snack you get at a fish and chips shop. There is an ongoing war with those in Victoria, who innocently tried to call the battery goodness a “potato cake.”
