The Great Aussie Dunny

  1. The Great Aussie Dunny or outhouse is an icon of the Australian landscape - I posted a couple of pictures in the "Do you close the door to pee" thread but in the process of finding the pictures came across this little gem of a story - enjoy!

    Great story, Gwenith !

    On one of these threads, I wish you would write some of the
    Aussie slang and then the English equivalent.
    I enjoy your threads, and stories.
    But, sometimes I don't know if it is a misspelling or a word.
    I'd get more out of the stories if I new the "english translation"

    for the uniquely Aussie language.

    Gwenith....great story...& sooooooo funny!! :chuckle

    If one of my grand-mothers was still alive...I would print that story off just so she could read it..she would have loved it! Being a farm wife....they also had an out-house...prior to in-door plumbing. I remember when I was a little kid...my siblings & cousins would venture up to this ole' wooden out-house & stare down that infamous "hole".....wondering what else was down there! Heehee! Later, many years gone by....some kids came down her lane, & stole the out-house & used it as a Halloween prank....left it sitting in the middle of main street of our town!
