During BIOS1162

Lecturer: Remember, no sandals or thongs in practical classes. Everything must be covered up.
Vickie (only half paying attention, suddenly alert): But… how do you even know if somebody is wearing a thong?!
Girl next to Vickie: Erm, thong shoes, maybe?

Oh. Ohhhh!

    ‘Thongs’ in Australia almost exclusivley refers to the shoes, while the undergarment is called a g-string.

    You’re not the first one it’s casued worry to. lol (Though my favourite expression to scare non-British tourists with is still, “Can I bum a fag off you, mate?”)

      But but but thongs and g-strings are different, like the abbr and acronym tags! </geek> Oh well, more things to get used to. tongue

    I wouldn’t be able to deal with that class. I only wear flip-flops or sandles so yeah.

    Good question though, I bet the class got a good laugh! hehe

    As far as I know, g-string is a pantie that shows (I don’t know how to explain it, English isn’t my mother tongue) most of your but, like a very narrow backside. Meanwhile a thong is only a “thread” on the backside.
    Hmmm…I don’t know if that is clear or makes any sense…

    Oh, I see you like L2 too!

    I don’t think we play on the same server, but it’s nice to meet more L2 fans. bigsmile

    Love the layout, by the way and nice site. ^^

    Thong shoes…? That makes no sense to me. :S

    LOL thats funny with the “thongs” I dont usually wear them though..

    Heh, I think Constance had it the wrong way round. A thong has a slightly thicker back whereas a g-string is literally just a string. Thongs are more comfortable + better-looking, methinks.

    I could post pictures of my own thongs and the one g-string I have for comparison, but I don’t suppose anyone would be interested. tongue

    The site looks awesome in IE. However, in firefox (my predominant browser) you can only see a blue square and generic font. Which sucks sad

    I would wish the graphics for my favourite game Neverwinter Nights was as awesome as they are for yours! Maybe in nwn 2 it will be layout friendly.

    I thought a thong WAS undies – but what do I know smile

    Yeah, some of my friends and I made up a song about a thong (not really sure why) and when our teacher hears we assertively insist that we’re talking about thong sandals. Ummm… DUH! Like, what other kind of thongs are there…? ; P

    lol That was my thought as soon as I read the first sentence. Some sort of a cultral shock, maybe? I really like those. Moooore please. bigsmile

    Hahaha! Ah, random Aussie slang. tongue Thongs also provide a source of confusion for me when they’re mentioned in American movies/songs, because I’m all “why are they going on about sandals? o__O”

    Aww and you’re going to USyd! The quadrangle building is beautiful there, though I’ve gotten lost in the maze of streets elsewhere. The residential colleges also look like something out of Hogwarts! I go to UNSW, its long-standing rival. tongue

    lol. I did that one time. But I was with my aunt.

    HER: Are you going to wear it with thongs? (refering to a skirt)
    ME: Um, no!
    HER: So you’re going to wear it with runners??
    ME: oh. ohhhhhhhhhhhh! *goes red*

    I hate it when people refer to flip-flops as thongs. It just sounds weird. I always think they are talking about underwear unless I’m really listening to what they are saying.
