Si tell me, why do australians call them Macca's?
>>
>>7230410
We don't. Only bogans, children, and, more recently, dickheads who have been sucked in by the franchise's attempt to Australianise their local image by advertising with a term that was previously only used by children and bogans.
>>
>>7230410
Apparently the mutation went McDonalds of Australia -> McAus -> Maccas.
But don't quote me on that, I'm not from Australia and only heard that from a friend.
>>
>>7230410
Who knows, most australian slang is like the shane becomes shazza, jane jazza etc

>>7230981
Dont think so
>>
>>7230410
Because Australia is the home of demons.
>>
>>7230981
I have never heard it called McDonalds of Australia or McAus

Us Aussies just have a tendency to shorten words or add similar prefixes.

Service Station -> Servo
U-Turn -> You-ey
McDonalds -> Maccas
Cop -> Coppa
Tin can of Beer (or small boat) -> Tinny

That's a few examples. What's even weirder however is the poms that call it Maccies.
>>
>>7230981
Your friend is making stuff up. It's common in Australia to colloquially abbreviate words to the first syllable and tack on an "ah" or "ee."
>>
>>7230418
excuses, excuses
>>
>>7230990
Service Station -> Packy
U-Turn -> The fuck
McDonalds -> The fuckin what
Cop -> The Bronze
Tin can of Beer (or small boat) -> niggers
>>
It's just a part of Australian linguistics. We're lazy and like shortening things.
>>
>>7230410
It's close sounding to "mecca" and Australia will be the first to be overrun by those diaperheads.
>>
>>7231027
Australia is girt by sea. We'll be overrun, eventually, but not before nations that can simply be walked to.
>>
>>7230990
Other side of the ditch is similar.

Service Station -> Petty Station
U-Turn -> You-ey
McDonalds -> Maccas
Cop -> Pig
Weed wrapped in tinfoil -> Tinny

>>7230410
It's a shortened form of McDonalds and we shorten a lot of words.

>>7230418
Yes we do, it's been called maccas for years, by bogans and non bogans alike. They've only very recently tried to market it as maccas though, which is cringey tb'h.

>>7230981
Doesn't sound right.

And as a side thought, I call indomie mi goreng "gonggers" (pronounced gongaz). We do shorten words a lot.

I swear I'm not a bogan.
>>
i've heard amerifags call it maccie d's and britfags call it maccies. everyone got their little nickname for it, what's not to get about ausfags calling it maccas?
>>
>>7231043
If you called it Maccas before McDonald's embraced the term, and thought you weren't a bogan, I've got news for you.
>>
>>7230981
No one has ever called it McAus.

Theres a fuck load of people in aus whose last name is McDonald, McLaughlin, McIntosh... and alot of them are called Macca
>>
>>7231029
Aye
>>
>>7231045
We call it MickeyD's.

Looks too much like McAss

Why do French cucks call it 'McDo'?
>>
>>7231043
You sound like a 'boge to me, m8.
>>
>>7230990
I live on practically the opposite side of the world (New England) and we use the term you-ey as well. weird.
>>
>>7231080
>2016
>still not calling a you-ey a 180 degree hobgoblin twist
>>
>>7231070
Because they're all islamics disgusing themselves as french and they wouldn't let us kill Khadaffi back in the 1980's but hollar at us in the USA for not helping them recently.

French=hipocrites.
>>
I always thought cop = copper because 2 cent coins were made from copper and were outdated and old fashioned.
>>
>>7230990
>>7230990

Britbong here
Service Station -> same
U-Turn ->same
McDonalds -> Maccies
Cop -> Fed
Tin can of Beer (or small boat) -> Tinny
>>
>>7230418
revoke this cunts citizenship.
>>
>>7231070
We call it "Meckels" here in Germany.
>>
>>7231120
But you're germans and taking in 1 million syrians and are suppressing the crime rates, so who gives a shit what you have to say about it. You need to get over the bullshit WW II guilt and be yourselves. Sucking up to syrians wont help you, in fact it makes you faggots look like a joke.
>>
>>7231125
/pol/ pls
>>
>>7231127
This has a lot to do with cooking. What will be left of German food once merkel and her social enginerring or making Germany and every nation around it controlled by syrians and islamcs? She and her social enginerring cronies and henchmen did in a few years what the islamics couldn't do in 2000 years.

That's directly related to cooking... now you'll all be eating halal shit and paying some muslim tax unless you convert.

You're an aussie so stop pretending, nobody here calls a can of beer a tinny - it's a can of fucking beer. McDonalds is a Maccy D's.
>>
>>7231139
I also remember webzines lol

Do you honestly think that any white nation will let those savages have control of nukes? inb4 SA, they hid them or destroyed them before the niggers took over.

Fucking cringe-worthy when marketing suits pick up on retarded slang.

Maccas is going down the gurgler in Aus and they are just making more and more bad business decisions.
>>
>>7231223
The create your own burger thing wasn't bad... but a year or so ago I could get a large quarter pounder combo for $6, now it's $13.
Plus no more mcdoubles = a shit

I just call it Macdonalds because Morgan Sperglock said it in his documentary and now I can't get it out of my head.

>Cop -> Fed
What the fuck are you on?
>>
>>7231091
It's because police badges were made of copper when they first became fashion. Police were soon called coppers which became cops.
>>
>>7231096
scot?
>>
>>7231538

Actually, no. The term "cop" comes from an old word meaning to seize or arrest.

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=cop
>>
Service station = Servo
U-turn = Uey
Shane = Shane-o
Barry = Bazza
Sharron = Shazza
Cigarette = Ciggy
Bottle shop = Bottle-o

You get the point
>>
It's just a nickname for Mc or Mac names.
>>
>>7230990
>>7231032
>>7231080
>U-Turn -> You-ey
The phrase Australian's use is mainly 'chucking a you-ey'
>>
>>7230410
Aussies are like sharks, if they stop shitposting for too long they die
>>
>>7233474
In Boston, USA we say bang a you-ey

>>7230981

Tell your mate he's a shitcunt.
>>
>>7231141

The fuck is wrong with you? Teetotal-ling faggots like you shouldn't sprout on about shit you have no fucking clue about.

A 'tinny' is perfectly acceptable/common vernacular for a can of beer.
