    After a few years in north qld I was adding ey to the end of just about every sentence! It's soooo easy to pick up.

    I once dated a guy who pronounced sushi to rhyme with push-ee instead of soo-shi.

    We did not go out for much longer after that.

    Oh some more:

    Expresso instead of espresso.

    Misc-cheev-ee-us instead of mis-chiv-us.

    Ex cetera instead of et cetera.

    And... Os-straya Day!
