Just a couple. As flat as a shit-carter's hat - depressed. Rock Choppers - roman catholics.And from my navy days; Piss Strainers - braised kidneys, Train Smash - tomato au gratin. Up Top - above Australia, mainly Asia. And when asked what our job was we said "we traveled in steel for the gov't". Goffas - coke / sprite etc. Some nicknames ( maybe a thread on their own ) Opium - slow working dope. Jungles - wet & dense. And yes, down here a "root" is sexual intercourse.

Regards / JG / FME.
