(often, 'Durry')

Generic term for a cigarette in the Antipodeas, esp. Australia.
Short for 'Bull Durham' - an old brand of rolling tobacco.

"David Bradley, Australian Journal of Linguistics (1989) suggests that it may be derived from a widely used brand of loose tobacco used for roll-your-owns, Bull Durham, clipped and resuffixed with the most productive suffix for forming new colloquial words in Australian English."
