Cool toilets!

Tell me about your favourite local colloquialisms! Mine are

Grouse from Queensland, Australia. Means cool in the slang sense (excellent, first rate et cetera).

“You have a cool computer”
“Your computer is grouse”


Bog from Oxfordshire, England. means toilet, both the object and the room.

“I need to use your toilet”
“I need to go the bog”

[Edit] Should I have said should "local colloquialisms"? I think local may be extraneous ... ?[/Edit]
[Edit Two] *Sigh* me no gud mitt dem anglish 2day. [/Edit Two]
