Where HavE all the Men GonE?

An analysis of new census figures has shown that Australia is suffering from an unprecedented “man drought”.

The statistics have revealed that there are almost 100,000 more females than males in Australia.

The problem is worse in the coastal cities, where women have moved seeking better jobs and lifestyles, while many men have gone overseas.
Australia suffering ‘man drought’

“If you go into the United Arab Emirates census you’ll find there is around 12,000 Australians living in Dubai, mostly male, mostly in the 25 to 34-year age group.

Wowza. Man drought. Go figure. What’s a girl to do?blonde9.gif

Seeing that Australia is made up of a multicultural society with people from over 210 different nationalities, how do we begin to define the “typical Australian dude” anyway?

Some observations and insights I learned from my Aussie buds:

Aussie guys take pleasure in poking fun of people, even people in positions of authority.

I’m told that the jokes are meant to be “ice-breakers”, and never intended to offend. Hit me with your best shot boys.

Moving right along………Heh.

Australian men don’t care for displays of affection for their male friends too much eh.
No hugging or linking arms..uh uh.,,unless of course you’re on a soccer or rugby field. So, if ya need a hug…join a team.

However, Aussie blokes are among the most faithful in the world.

I was er…cautioned to be careful about which topics to choose for a first meeting.

Don’t ask an Australian men their income. How rude.
Steer clear of personal relationships. couple10.gif Too invasive mate.

Politics and religion?..well, that’s like wandering in a mine field.

Alright guys.
Speak up.
Are Australian guys really no-nonsense, beer-guzzling, cheers.gif crocodile-wrestling kind of a men or what?

Some famous Aussie blokes:
Do ya know who they are?

Don’t cheat now. Answers on the bottom of da post y’all.

Did u cheat? Hmmmm.


OK here goes:

Simon Baker. Curtis Stone. Patrick Rafter. Russell Crowe..and the Aussie swim team.

And………Who doesn’t simply melt over that Aussie accent? Fess up now.

Here’s a freebie guyz n dollz.
Some slang I picked up:

1-”As scarce as hen’s teeth”:
Impossible – wanting something that is impossible to obtain and in fact doesn’t even exist.

2-Backy=Tobacco

3-Back of Bourke
A long way from the city and civilization. Bourke is a town in outback Australia.

4-Bender
A drinking binge – totally blind drunk. woohoo.drunkani.gif

5-Buckley’s chance
Very small possibility of obtaining what you want.
(No idea where that came from?) Who’s Buckley y’all? confused9.gif

6-Cahoots
Planning some activity with someone that often involves something illegal. Kinda like our version of “thick as thieves”.

7-Ocker
Australian uncouth chauvinistic males. pfftt!

8-Flick
To permanently stop engaging in some activity.
For example : “I don’t like Angel any more so I gave her the flick.” DON’T U DARE. heh

What say y’all?
Why have all the men gone?

To all my Aussie friends..girlz and guyz..Jiminy cricket! Hugssssssssss and kisses. Heh.

Special shout out to my Australian blogger friends and the whole Aussie community of bloggers who support America and freedom everywhere.

Y’all are “Very kerosene”…I was told that means “Very good” – to like very much. Ha.
Bet I royally messed that one up.

    You did great, Angel. They love the footy, don’t get too ‘mushy’ with other guys, and love a dry joke. If they’ve gone abroad, it’s because they love traveling. I’m not surprised they’re faithful. They’re not really natural flirts. You’ve got to practically hit them with a two by four to get them to take notice…heh.
    Thanks for the honorable mention! :)
    Actually I’m a sucker for a great American accent.
    We love you guys too, BTW.

  3. DD2 says:

    There nuttin like a Brooklyn accent.

  4. MK says:

    Thanks Angel.

    Man drought, huh, really? Had no idea, perhaps it’s cos i ain’t inclined that way. :)

    Yeah Crowe’s alright, when he’s not throwing things around that is.

    Nice roundup of the slang, but ya missed the most-often used ones like, wanker, tosser [that might be British]. Perhaps it’s best you left them out, put our best foot forward so to speak. :grin:

    “Who doesn’t simply melt over that Aussie accent? Fess up now.”

    No melting here. Must be a gal thbing. :-)

    Fewer guys than gals… hmm, sounds like my undergrad school. Back in the bad old days, some guys called that a “target rich environment,” though I’m sure college guys have grown up a bit since then *cough*

    Still, 100,000 shortfall… 100,000 is only .00476190476% of the 21,000,000 Australian poplulation; that’s not much variance. In fact, it’s nearly indistinguishable from a 50/50 split. With the male population, according to this stat, 98.1132075% of the female pop, this is a “deficit” that doesn’t exist.

  8. Katie says:

    It used to be that Australia had 6 men for every one woman. Those were the days. Now they are all gone. Darn! And I was hoping for fun down under if I went that way.

  9. Brooke says:

    Very interesting!

  10. Layla says:

    Hun, there are still men around – but now they call them “girly men!” UGH! :(

  11. KarL M says:

    There are some great posts Angel, that i just read and chuckle and dare not add my two cents…..this is one of them…
    BTW, what is the male/female kangaroo ratio??????

  12. The Griper says:

    you have a couple of slang words there that are common slang here also.
    “cahoots’ is one
    “bender” is another
    “as scarce as hen’s teeth” is another.

    all with the same meaning too.

  13. The Griper says:

    oh yeah, backy and flick are also. we used to flick the tv off at 10.

  14. Otto - American Interests says:

    Sorry I’m late gettin ‘ere, mate the office is kinday busy of late…

    Gota hand to ya Angel, did good ‘ere. Can’t say a noticed a shortage of blokes but then again…Hey, I reckon theyr’e a tad more womanising in Melbourne than Sydney, dunno why, but Melbourne is more Europa, Sydney more LA.

    The typical OZ? Our borders are too open! Who knows in fifty years!!!

    Those girly types, (the metro’s) could do with a jobbin

    Finally, I reckon the American accent is grouse too….

    Keep up the good work….
