Several 'alert readers' (Dave Barry isn't the only one), including one from Canberra Australia (!) have given me the answer to the New Zealand slang queries posted here a couple of days ago.
I had wondered what it was that 'Ben', the Kiwi voice in the Mazda6 TomTom SatNav system, was saying in the following audio clip, when reporting that you had reached your destination:
Turns out he's reminding you to take your 'jandals' (that'd be 'sandals', more specifically flip-flops), 'togs' (an old British word generally meaning 'clothing' but in The Antipodes, more specifically 'bathing suits'), and 'chilly-bin', (another word for 'cooler'; the Aussies also often use 'Esky' as in Eskimo, which is an Aussie brand name for coolers, now owned by Coleman).
What was that about countries being separated by a common language?
