Mucho Congratulata.But what is a Bloodnut?A Queensland term?
Hi Bruce.I thought you were an Aussie! Aren't you?OK. I'm a redhead, as you've noticed. In Aus a bloodnut is a red head.Blood for the red and nut for the noggin'.Any more Aussie slang you need 'splainin'? I'm happy to help, if I can!
A FOT is a sub-species of bloodnut.
Ok, boab.What's a FOT?I only just discovered "fanta pants" this year (or last year), to my great amusement.
Huh? I'm redhead too, or was till 1980 when I lost most of my hair. I got called 'Carrot-top', 'Bluey','Spud' and others I can't remember, but I've never heard that one.But then I grew up in Five Dock where I guess we got very cosmopolitanised.
I'm originally from Sydney. I was called bloodnut by a fellow I worked with at Telecom (hasn't everyone worked for Telecom at some time in their lives?).
Was offered a clerk-ship at Telecom once. But stayed at 'Jeans for Genes' labs, then in Camperdown - nicest people I've ever worked for. Aussie slang is a wonderful thing - always more to discover. Knew a brightly redheaded Kiwi who used to travel thru the wilds of Bangla Desh where they'd never seen red hair. They wondered if he was a 'Rakshash' or 'devil' as that was how their myths saw it.
