Heard this story today, appeals to my Cornish roots!
Okay- this is about the Cornish Miners who settled here in Oz.Apparently cornish pasties (YUMMMMM) in cornish (excuse the spelling.. phonetics…) are called oggie- get this- the wives of the miners would make the pasties and then send then lunch boy off with same. Lunch boys’ would call down the shaft- “OGGIE OGGIE OGGIE” and the response from the hungry chappies below? “oy oy oy!” or- bring it on down, we mighty hungry down here! How cool is that?
Happy Aussie day to all Aussies great, small and of all cultural persuasions. Behave yourselves.
