South Australians (in general) are crow eaters and
Western Australians are sand gropers. By the same
token Queenslanders are banana benders. The state
nicknames for Victoria and NSW are all but forgotten
(Cabbage patchers and walers respectively). As for
cities, surely a woman from Adelaide has to be an
Adelady. :-), and maybe someone from Perth is a
Perthon. I think I'd better stop now.
