The Yanks are starting to get it.

It seems Australian Slang is finally taking off in the U.S. – it seems like only yesterday that Paul Hogan was making Crocodile Dundee and since then, it’s apparently spread across the land like wildfire, according to the media reports. Boy, what an overnight sensation that’s turned out to be.
Seriously, though; I was interested to learn from a US colleague that videos by The Wiggles are almost as popular over there as they are in Australia, so I guess there’ll be a lot of 5 year olds walking around the malls with few, if any “wukkas”.
