Obama down under? Now that I will enjoy!
It's not a name, it's an instruction!
That's if he ever makes it there OR.He's cancelled twice already.Chickenshit!
Like it!Excellent spot JP.
Poor Kevin Rudd. He's been so looking forward to the Obamessiah coming. Been jumping up and down in excitement, counting off the days, and yet again he's been disappointed, hopes dashed like a child who got nothing for Christmas. Barack Obama really is a prick tease, eh. Kevin Rudd is just a prick.
Nope. Being as this place is upside down barrack means the opposite here. You barrack for your favourite footy team like you would root for them in other countries. This might be something to do with the fact that root means something else, as indicated by the song, 'I rooted a girl who rooted a guy who rooted a girl who rooted a guy who rooted a girl who rooted Shane Crawford'. He used to be captain of a team a lot of people barrack for.
Come to think of it that's probably why the dumb fucks spelt it that way.
Whatever, It made oi smile :)
We could use them for target practice, in lieu of the real thing. :-P 8-) Just kidding, ha ha.
There must be a Barracks somewhere in need of a new spot of tarmac on the Parade Ground .. then an entire Battalion could practice "Marking Time" on his head ... =-O :-D :-D
Yeah .. them & the scary Dolls Bunni ..And who said anything about kidding ?? .... =-O :-D
Actually, they got the whole damn name wrong. Should have been Barry Soetoro.
Nope.......verb [ trans. ] Brit. & Austral./NZjeer loudly at (someone performing or speaking in public) in order to express disapproval or to create a distraction : opponents barracked him when he addressed the opening parliamentary session | [as n. ] ( barracking) the disgraceful barracking which came from the mob.
Ruddy Rudd obviously hasn't got anything better to think about then.The sad fuck.
..... and then the real thing ;)
Hmmmm ... "Soetoro" .. that name has a familiar "ring" to it ..Ahh, yes .. it sounds a bit like "Soweto" ... I wonder how long it will take for the elusive Birth Certificate to materialise .. revealing him to be none other than ..Wait for it ..... Nelson Mandela's long-lost love child ... >:o
Joe, I know that definition, and I'm sure it was accurate for Oz decades ago, but trust me, in several years in Oz I have never even once heard the word used in that sense. In Hansard, maybe, in everyday conversation no. One of the first times I heard it used was not long after I got here and was asked my a cousin of my missus if I'd picked a team to barrack for. Another was before the last Ashes series when almost every Aussie I know asked me if I'd still be "barracking for the poms" (occasionally they said England). As far as I know the usage is the same in NRL-land as it is in AFLdom, and every website about Aussie-isms and slang I've seen give the same sort of definition: to cheer for a sports team or a player.Annoyingly, most Aussies I know still think the sun shines out of Bazza's and would happily barrack for him. Either definition could still be an instruction.
