A term of derision by non-Anglo-Celtic Australians to describe Anglo-Celtic Australians. Especially used in inner-urban, working class areas of Melbourne frequented by children of Greek, Italian or Vietnamese migrants ("wogs") to describe (especially blue eyed, blond) Anglo-Celtic Australians. Only considered very mildly offensive. Started in the mid nineteen-seventies and still occasionally used in the early twenty-first century, as there is no similar word available for this purpose.
Derived from "Skippy", a very popular Australian TV program from the 1960's about a (very clever) kangaroo and his human (Anglo-Celtic Australian) guardians.
"Piss off ya ugly leb wog!"
"Yeah, up yours, skip!"
