Australia's greatest linguistic contribution to the world is the phrase "keen as mustard" (this is a compliment)
@ashfurrow might I also submit the following: mad as a cut snake, gone troppo, dog's eye and dead horse, three fifths of fuck all. And of course that perennial favourite: not here to fuck spiders.
@ashfurrow that may come from a local brand of mustard named Keen’s (which exists, though may or may not be the origin)
@ashfurrow it's actually really hard for us Australians to know which of our sayings are known worldwide and which are just us being a complete idiots!
@techn1x to a much lesser extent, I think, Canadians have that same problem. I used the term “keener” and no one here (in New York) knew what I meant.
