    Doesn't calling someone "Blue" in Ausspeak mean you're referring to a ginger?

    Lovely word, kerfuffle, has a sort of texture to it.

    Definitely of British origin. Coincidentally I saw it referenced recently in an article talking about words that deter younger voters from listening to older politicians.

    It was used in a very ironic sense in many Lou and Andy sketches from Little Britain.

    Yes. It also means having a fight, as in 'have a blue'.

    It can also be used as 'true blue' - real, as in true blue Aussie.


    Blue . . . useful

    I'm going back 20 or so years now, isn't a Blue-y/Blue-ie a big fly, blue-bottle in Pommyland?



    Reading the last few posts I think Big Kev's been reincarnated.
