    very interesting Spidge
    also never heard the use of the word " larrikinism" before

    Larrikin is an Australian English term meaning "a mischievous young person, an uncultivated, rowdy but good hearted person", or "a person who acts with apparent disregard for social or political conventions".

    The Australian Poet
    Henry Lawson wrote in Shearers:

    They tramp in mateship side by side -
    The Protestant and Roman
    They call no biped lord or sir
    And touch their hat to no man!

    These are the Larrikin types:
    Paul Hogan in Anzacs


    And Graham Kennedy in "The Odd Angry Shot" (Warning: Very Crude Language)
