"We may lose a few words but we're also creating new ones: budgie-smugglers, for instance - a slang term for men's swimming trunks."

Budgie smugglers is so old even my mum had heard it used in the 1960s. Dunny was specifically a stand alone can based outhouse so of course most people don't use it unless they still have them. Rural areas still use more traditional slang than metro areas because well.........they are all a little slow out there.

This article gets dragged out every few years out here *yawn* about the rise of spamspeak and the decline of strine.
