Can You Think Of A Better Name?


Recommended Posts

The current official "name" for the Australian team is the "Socceroos". Almost everybody thinks it's crap, but is there anybody out there who can come up with a decent name?

We should award a prize of a case of Fosters for the winner - but you'll have to collect it in Brisbane!

Come on youse scousers, we are the wackiest & most quick-witted lot, so I guess it doesn't have to be a REAL name - just a good, apt & witty one!

GO FOR IT!

LOL At least you're the Pommy Bastard and not "that Pommy Cnut" - you're ahead

already! Only takes half a lifetime to be accepted eh?  :D

 

 

Surely the phrase Pommy comes from POME - which is an abreviation of

 

Prisoner Of Mother England - which is the title that Aussies took when we banished them from our isles for commiting crimes so terrible that we couldn't even house them in our own prisons! :D

 

Can never understand why they call us Pommy bastards - it was used by the english originally - its almost ironic!

 

ANyway - new name for the socceroos...

 

the 'downunders' - coz they never win shit!

Their are 2 variatons of this rolwo...the POME ( suppsoedly was sewn on their rags) theory of which I have also heard...But their's also another relating to Pommie Granites...It fux me to be honest, havent a clue which is the deal.

 

best Ive seen in retaliation was a fella I wrked with over here from Glasgow,...he once produced a Loaf o bread during a break that had a small chain & a pad lock...around the top....

 

To which our Scottish comedian explained..."These Bastards have a reputation 4 stealing bread"

 

He became known as of all things the " Scottish Pom"..????

 

I always sing to em,...Ball & chain, Ball & chain, you came on the 1st fleet, I came by Qantas plane..!!!

 

Gota give it to the Australian poeple though ( some seem a bit big headed when tavel our way[uk]) but in their own country, they are so hospitable & LAFF at feurkin anyhting. Good Sports indeed. They happily take what they give to, & call a dickhead a dickhead...Pat Likes that.

Yeah - I work with two Aussies at shell in Ellesmere Port - they are both from Melbourne suburbs(Korumburra i think).

 

Quality - have some good laughs - as you said, they call a spade a spade! :D
