A guide to The Betoota Advocate's most memorable slang, nicknames and sayings.

The Betoota Advocate prides itself as not only Australia's oldest newspaper, but also its most ardent documenter of our nation's ever-changing language.

Betoota-isms is a deep dive into Australian culture, invention and creativity with a complete record of 'English' as it is used from the Member's Box of the MCG to the change rooms of the Betoota Dolphins rugby league club.

Discover the meaning of the Michelle Pfeiffer (the Pfizer).

Identify, with confidence, our nation's leaders: Scotty from Marketing, Dictator Dan and Hot Mess Gladys.

Ask your mate to pick you up a Bachelor's Handbag and some bread rolls on his next run to Coles.

As authoritative as the Macquarie Dictionary and as exhaustive as a Fortitude Valley pub crawl, Betoota-isms is your one-stop guide to the grandeur of the great Australian vernacular.
