Oh My Golly Golly Gosh, you speak so oddly, in America. Woopie and Gobs. I'm not saying a word. () I'll um, er, um mail a link to my lady. She loves to make Whoopie and this may help to improve her Gob technique. I'll um, er, um, go now. Thanks for this project !

 can you explain further..

Whoopie is old slang for sex, as in "making whoopie".
Your gob is your mouth.
Other American slang terms have ruder meanings here:
To "have" someone is either to shag them, or beat them up. So "having relations" is either wife beating or incest!
You sit on your fanny right? Well here fanny means female genitals. So you're right half the time ;)

I know. I may be Australian but I'm worldly. I was just having fun and no offence was mean.

oh, I'm not offended!
Nah I think it's great. Like when I found out that you Australians wear thongs on your feet and use durex to stick things together.
Did you know that the Vauxhall Nova did badly in spanish speaking markets because "No va" means "doesn't go".

In the sixties thongs were on OUR feet here in the USA as well.

I wish I had seen that.

well, That was before they started calling them flip flops.

LOL. I still call them thongs and not Flip Flops.

I'm glad you weren't offended.
Are you from the states or the UK ?
Durex is sticky tape down under.
In Spain, they have a brand of condom called "Jiffy". The T-shirts say "I'll be there in a Jiffy !".
Thongs are flip-flops/jandals not underwear, though a singular thong is like a G-String.

When kids kiss at a party, in some states it is called "Pashing on", where other states it is "Pashing off".
A corner shop is a deli or a milk bar.

Back to Spanish, The Mitsubishi Pajero is called something else in Latin countries. Pajero means W@nker in some slang.

What a wonderful world we live in !

Toilet.... We say its a "Dunny", USA it is the "John".
Poor John.

Good things your way !
