Or you could grow a skin

According to the Aussie press, American students in Queensland are terribly upset by the horrible, nasty and rude things that the sheepshaggers have been saying about them.

"Griffith University student Ian Wanner, 19, from Oregon, said abusive Australian students had repeatedly called him a ‘sepo’ – short for septic tank. ‘It is so disrespectful. It’s not exactly the most welcoming atmosphere here,’ he said."

Oh fuck off, you whiny little tosser. ‘Septic’ is recognised Anglosphere rhyming slang for ‘Yank'; it’s not a suggestion that you’re literally a cesspit. Aussies take the piss out of each other and everyone, all of the time. In future, you may wish to try learning something about a country’s culture before deciding to live there – although I’m aware that this would be a bizarre novelty for most of your countrymen.

  1. I think part of the problem is that septics – sorry, Americans – neither recognise the phrase "taking the piss" nor have one of their own that means exactly the same thing (in the sense of friendly mockery rather than abuse).

  2. This whole article must be a put-on. The first sentence describes "hate attacks", and the dickhead from the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Commission classifies calling someone a Sepo as "racial vilification."

    That’ll be the last time I check the "white" box on a survey form. From now on I’m writing in "American."

    Some of us recognize the concept as well as the phrase "taking the piss" – but anyone who goes abroad thinking that everyone loves America deserves to be called worse than a sepo.

  3. Excellent, I was reading this post and noticed that the google ad at the top (why *don’t* you just whore your arse out to a sailor?) is advertising "cesspits and septic tanks". Reckon I might give them a ring and have an American installed under my house…

  4. Hey sheepshaggers, I’m a real live American here in Oz. First, I’d like to say that the kid at Griffith needs to stop being a whiny little pussy. Second, I’m having a great time here in Qld and I’m glad I came. Third, believe it or not, us ‘sepos’ aren’t all arrogant, ignorant dickheads. I know most Aussies aren’t being malicious when they use slang like Sepo and I think everyone needs to calm the fuck down. As long as I can ask you about riding a kangaroo to work and the wonders of finally having electricity, I don’t mind the sepo thing.
