Throw another shrimp on the barbie

2 Comments Typically Aussie

I know this 80’s advertisement is directed to Americans, but still. Why, oh why does Paul Hogan say: I slip an extra SHRIMP on the barbie. Aussies call them PRAWNS. Though the phrase throw another shrimp on the barbie has ever since been something the rest of the wold associate with Australia and I guess you Aussies get a bit tired of hearing it when you talk to us non-Australians who think we’re hilarious when whe throw the phrase in your face. 🙂
