Accents...I was once stopped in the streets of Melbourne Australia by two elderly ladies with very heavy American accents.
They asked me "Where can I go to buy a Beef Pie?". They seemed quite enthusiastic about trying one. Apparently it is an Australian Delicacy.
So I pointed towards the nearest greasy fast food joint. Good luck with your pie made of fatty gristle and reject bits of animal in gravy there ladies.
Many years ago, I travelled to Australia. I wanted to buy a golden dollar with Australian sapphire nuggets in it, they cost a dime and a dozen here. No one would understand me, so I'd keep on saying, "it is national Australian...", and they would say, "oh, apples! Apples are everywhere", leaving me bewildered.
Opals. Opals are everywhere in.Australia.
