  • Jetstar helps say g’day to Aussie Scrabble

    I'm guessing not many outside oz would know (or perhaps care) what 'bonza' or 'mollydooker' mean but I thought I'd post this anyway;

    Jetstar has unveiled a special decal on one of its Airbus A320s, VH-VQH, to promote the first country-specific version of the evergreen board game Scrabble.

    What makes Aussie Scrabble dinky di? Well, Mattel has included a list of local slang words in its official glossary that can be used when playing the game.

    Further, players receive bonus points when using one of the slang words from a list – including “brekkie”, “cozzie”, “dipstick”, “footy”, “shonky” and “sickie” – drawn from some 20,000 submissions from the public via the Jetstar Facebook page.

    ... and that's fair dinkum.

    I'll bet there were some bonzer suggestions that didn't make the cut!
