She'll be apples is the only one I've heard of. And I thought the "Aussie Salute" was giving somebody the finger 😅 That's what I got told lol

As an Australian I've only heard about two of these lol

Wow she'll be apples😃


Roose Loose in the top Padlock

I'm Australian and we seriously don't say these. Can you please find sayings that we actually do say?

Hahaha. These are funny but as Mrs. Brooks said I wanna read some that they actually do fluently say in Australia

No one in Australia says any of this.

As an Aussie, I've only ever heard the term "she'll be apples", though more by older generations, and Ive heard of the Aussie salute, though never heard anyone use the term, but I've always known it as giving somebody the rude finger.
