Bloke: an informal English word for man, similar to chap, guy, feller/fella/fellow,geezer.
Often thought of as an Australian word as it is commonly used over there. The Aussie Bloke is a stereotype of a typical Australian Man, i.e. loves sport, beer, bbq's.
It's used in UK and Aus. in the same way guy and dude are used in America
According to a local newspaper in the Midlands, the word originated in the Black country (an area near Birmingham, UK), but I'm really not sure how much truth is in that!
'Look at that fat bloke over there!'
'Right, what are you blokes drinking?'
