guessing that Jo may be English?Another fav of mine is '2 chips short of a butty' ie not quite in tune with the real world!
She's an Aussie... but what's "a butty"!?
a 'butty' is a sandwich! We have 'chip butty's' - bread and butter and chips (and ketchup for me). Lots of words the same between UK and Aussies - my Aussie friend has just arrived and mostly we understand each other - apart from what she calls 'thongs' and we call 'flip-flops'
