Fascinating!  I heard an interview once with an Australian linguist who described the language as pulled between American and British English -- the American influence dating from WWII, the British much further back.  Of course he was a pompous old coot whose accent to me was nearly indistinguishable from Shreddi's and whose judgments reeked of the class concerns which as an American I deplore.

It would be awesome if your "spruiker" was a survivor from the days when Australia was New Holland and Tasmania Van Diemen's Land.

The Australian bastardization of the English language takes root in British English and has definitely been influenced heavily by American culture since WWII. Growing up in the 80s our TV was mix of British, American and local content. Now it's heavily skewed to American content and there is less influence on our culture and hence the language from the Poms.

Aussies have also butchered the English language ourselves as demonstrated in this video.

That's hilarious.  Spag-Bol is my favorite.  But I associate the abbreviating trend with the Brits based on the number of times I've winced reading the Daily Mail.  American English is actually pretty conservative -- we do the same kinds of things but rarely commit them to print.

Flipping a uey goes way back here, but until now I had no idea how to spell it.

It's used often in sports betting (and especially horse racing) as a guy that recommends "can't miss picks" usually from some inside information.
I've often referred to those guys as sharps

The abbreviation of words is not new to languages but can you abbreviate a whole sentence of words and have the other person completely understand what you are saying?

We are extremely gifted. :P

I think it is an equivalent phenomena of being able to carry on drunken conversations with Glaswegians (or any thick accents etc) but later when sober the communication is broken and one might as well be in a non-English speaking country. In that case where you are in a foreign country the easy solution, as any English speaker knows, is to speak LOUDER. Eventually the natives will understand.)

and SLOWER.

I have actually seen American tourists attempt to speak to non-English speakers louder and slower expecting them to understand if they use that method of communication.

Yes, speaking LOUDER and SLOWER is the key to communication with non-English speakers, and more effective when one is in their country.

Is it true that you do all your shows in the nude? I'm asking for a friend.

Surely that is an illusion!  Occasionally I have been convinced, when in my cups, that I am actually fluent in French, and the accommodating nods and smiles of those around me do little to persuade otherwise.  I insist upon ordering in that language, and cover any lapses with what I am sure are the Frenchest of qu'est-ce que c'ests and qu'est-ce qu'on dits, delivered with a very Gallic wave of the hand.  It is only with the morning that the awful truth dawns.

There may be no show tonight as the internet is currently out at my house with no ETA to be fixed. Taking the dog for a walk. Hopefully I'm back online upon my return. Stay tuned.
