Following up on the success of Strayapedia, Dom has put together a dictionary of all things 'Strayan. This is a funny, topical stocking stuffer for the Christmas market, and the perfect gift for anyone who loves The Chaser or The Betoota Advocate. See the attached sample definitions for a sense of the whole book. Avo - avocado, because "cado" is just so onerous to say. Increasingly Australians "smash" their avocado as opposed to slicing it, also for laziness reasons. It was suggested by the social researcher Bernard Salt that young Australians couldn't afford to buy property because they blow their disposable income on "smashed avocado" at fancy cafe. As one of the baby boomers who profited enormously from the massive increases in real estate value, pricing millennials out of the market, Salt was fortunate that the understandable backlash to his article didn't lead to him getting smashed himself. Bathers - swimmers Battler - 1. Someone of limited financial means. 2. Someone of comfortable financial means who views themselves as hard done by because most of their disposable income goes on their foolishly large mortgage. Howard's battlers - People who voted for John Howard because they shared his belief in ordinary enterprising Australians doing it for themselves without the interfering government getting in the way, and who were subsequently lavishly rewarded by his middle-class welfare programs. BHP - Broken Hill Proprietary, a major mining company that was once known as "the big Australian." Its merger with the UK-based Billiton saw it follow the Australian tradition of hanging out in London, doing a little bar work, and ultimately coming back home when things didn't work out--consequently, the company is now known just as BHP. Its namesake hill in Western NSW is now considerably more broken, thanks to BHP mining it until it no longer exists. Nevertheless, as one of Australia's largest companies, it has a proud record of job creation both at home and in Papua New Guinea, where its Ok Tedi mine created many jobs fixing the 1300 square kilometers of countryside it polluted and helping the 50,000 people affected. Billy - a bush teapot, originally made from an empty tin of "bully beef," and generally stoked in a campfire. Later usage commemorates the prime minister Billy McMahon, whom most Australians wanted to throw in a fire. Bogan - a derogatory term for lower-class Australians. Bogans may be identified by their flannelette markings and mullet plumage, and are found mostly in Maccas car parks, sitting on the bonnets of the highly polished V8s they collect as trophies. Bogans undertake an annual migration to Canberra for a ritual known as the "Summernats," and are considered an endangered species thanks to their prodigious consumption of Winnie Blue cigarettes.

2020 sucked. It's been a year of bushfires, floods, a recession, a global pandemic and Kanye West's presidential campaign. But it was also the year we all watched Hamilton, baked sourdough, had dinner parties on Zoom and drank constantly - okay, so maybe that wasn't such a great thing either. Amid the non-stop trauma, however, it's been a year of togetherness and community spirit - though mostly trauma. But as we limp towards 2021, it's time to look back at it all, and laugh. Because at least we all suffered through this year together. Not literally together - that was generally illegal. But we were side by side in our bubbles, all going through the same thing. The 2020 Dictionary is an invaluable record of all we learned in the year the world turned to sh*t, helpfully collected in alphabetical order, with jokes where appropriate, as well as in some places where they probably aren't. What They Said About This Book* The 2020 Dictionary will just disappear in the spring. Donald Trump I take full responsibility for blaming the health minister for this book. Daniel Andrews Stay six feet away from the book at all times. Dr Anthony Fauci This tome feels rather sesquipedalian. Boris Johnson This book is not allowed into Queensland unless it's playing footy. Annastacia Palaszczuk I've asked Angus Taylor to investigate burning this book as an energy source. Scott Morrison *These quotes are as real as hydroxychloroquine is effective against Covid
