Back in the mid 1960's Professor Afferbeck Lauder ( strine for Alphabetical Order) pseudonym used by Alastair Ardoch Morrison wrote "Let Stalk Strine" (Let's Talk Australian.) It's popularity spawned a series of books and other

With air chew, with air chew
Iker nardly liver there chew,
An I dream a badger kisser snits and die.
Phoney wicked beer loan,
Jars-chewer, nonnair roan,
An we'd dreamer batter mooner pinner sky.

With air chew, with air chew,
Hair mike-owner liver there chew,
Wile yerrony immy dream sigh maulwye scrine.
Anna strewer seffner barf
Yuma snow-eye Nietzsche laugh.
Cars with air chew immy arm sit snow you Strine.
