I am an ignorant American looking to brush up on my Aussie speak. I am happy to exchange some of my own expressions that you may not find in textbooks.
I was inspired to start this thread with some of my favorite Piros quotes.
"Sticks like **** to a blanket"
"Snug as a thumb in a bum"

I have been chasing wind for 2 decades so here some that I know-
"The wind today is up and down like a whore's panties" or its just "whore's panties" for short
"Check out Kenny Shlogginz out there mowin the lawn"

I will think of more as soon as I post this.
Please add your best ones!

"I'm as dry as a dead dingos donger" (thirsty)
"Fair suck of the sav" (fair go)
" Carrying on like a frog in a sock" (all over the place )
"Happy as a mosquito at a nudist camp" (very happy)

Dry as a nuns nasty ...thirsty
Sweating like a priest in court ... hot
Going for a 3 bags full... personal pleasure
Feel like a bag of fruit... root or sex

Google Cockney rhyming slang for more on Seppo. I'm a "fecking yank" as y'all would say and I love where that came from.
