|2.||Aussie Aussie Aussie...|
Oi! Oi! Oi!
Used by Australians in most of the circumstances where americans may chant U-S-A U-S-A.
This may be at one of the frequent moments of a fantastic sporting performance by an Aussie, or when nothing's happening.
Believed to have been derived from the Welsh 'Oggie Oggie Oggie - Oi Oi Oi!', which might actually mean something...
Seems to have peaked during the 2000 sydney olympics.
Occasionally repeated several times consecutively, the 'Oi' chorus growing louder with each calling.
Three blokes who know eachother: *standing* Aussie Aussie Aussie...
Spectators: Oi Oi Oi!
