Aroundtoit Australian Style
« on: March 08, 2016, 09:35:08 pm »

 
Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on UK television with British TV host Anne Diamond.
He used the word "manyana" (pronounced "man -yana").  Diamond asked him to explain what it meant.
He said that the term means:  "Maybe the job will be done tomorrow; Maybe the next day; Maybe the day after that; Or perhaps next week; Next month; Next year. Who really cares?"
The host turned to Albert Yatapingu from the Gumbaingeri Tribe (aboriginal) who was also on the show. She asked him if there was an equivalent term in his native language.
"Nah" he replied. "In Australia we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency."

It's spelled manana. ;)
More precisely, mañana. 8)

I think I may be related to the Wheredafukarewe tribe.   8)

Do those kind of fruit grow in countries where " men are men, and the goats are nervous " ?

The goats may well be nervous as are the sheep in NZ when blokes wearing rubber boots come around them
with a glint in their eye!
