The Chaser's War On Everything- Watch the Podcast!
« on: October 11, 2007, 03:01:03 am »
The Chaser, as it is usually called, is a satirical TV show in Australia. It basically consists of 5 guys taking the mickey out various current affairs, current affairs programs and other such things. Recently a couple of them made a fake Canadian motorcade during APEC and got right up, through 3 security checkpoints, in plane view of snipers, to Bush's hotel.

taking the mickey

Thank you, you're the first bloody Australian that I've heard use that blasted phrase! Thank you, not one person has understood what I mean when I say it...hell, I can't describe what it means, but I know, I know the context it should be used in and such. It's like trying to give an accurate description of irony :D

And on topic: I occaisionally use youtube or their bit on the ABC website to watch their shows. But rarely do I watch it on TV, usually there's other stuff on (and I always forget the day and time :D... >:().

I loved that Fake Motorcade thing (I mean did you see their freaking identification?!?! "Position: Insecurity" (or something along those lines, it was definitely insecurity though.)!!! And their airport stunt had me in tears laughing. Funny guys they are.

'Take the Micky' is a Northern English term, as far as I know. Basically everyone says it around thier.

It meants 'taking the piss'.
"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation." - Oscar Wilde

Yes, I am aware of the irony.

Eh, we say both in Scotland (well, where I came from), taking the piss and the mickey. But does taking the piss actually make any sense? If read literally, no.
