Careful! Orphia might think your talkin' about a car! "G'wan' then! Go root in yer ute, ya' lousy Aussie bogan*! Oi!"


*One word about the proper pronunciation, if I may? Is it yutes (as isissxn has so graciously outlined above) and Joe Pesci will now demonstrate:

https://youtu.be/K6qGwmXZtsE?t=110

Or is it "ute" with no why?

It's spelled "ute" and pronounced "yoot". I'm not sure what isissxn is referring to when she says "yutes".

Path top hell is paved by good intentions. Though it is bit too generous to silencing others. Never heard about him before. Don't care about him now, but be careful what is done because actions like this tend to have unforeseen consequences.

Silencing others is approved tactics by communists BTW...

Ok. LOL

Well, you'd probably like him. He's the one who wrote this:

I found myself defending the Daily Worker, which has gone out of its way to libel me more than once. But where had these people learned this essentially totalitarian outlook? Pretty certainly they had learned it from the Communists themselves! Tolerance and decency are deeply rooted in England, but they are not indestructible, and they have to be kept alive partly by conscious effort. The result of preaching totalitarian doctrines is to weaken the instinct by means of which free peoples know what is or is not dangerous.

I was referring to a joke from the movie My Cousin Vinny. Joe Pesci calls two youths "yutes" in an Alabama court, and hilarity ensues. I guess I spelled it wrong because I've only ever heard it spoken aloud. "Yout" probably makes more sense.

Not to be confused with Native American Utes

For clarification, the Australian word "Ute", is a contraction for the word "Utility". (As an aside, most words in 'strine are contractions.) It's pronounced similarly to the American word "Yute".

A Utility is a small truck, similar to a pickup, except that it uses a sedan front end and cabin, and the cargo bed is (usually) integrated with cabin, rather than having a separate cab and cargo bed as most pickups do.

The attached photo is of my Ute, a Dodge Rampage. The snow covering would be unusual in Australia.

Gotcha.

There are two types of people who drive utes: tradies and bogans. Tradie's utes are practical, are generally piled up in the back with tools and usually have a bar near the cab for lashing long things to and hanging occie straps and tiedowns from. Bogan utes usually have hard covers over the tray, turbocharged engines and chrome rims.

Cabin and cargo not separated? Is the cabin completely open to the elements from the rear?
I always thought that a Subaru Brumby (Brat to us USAians) was a ute, but there is a window separating the cabin and cargo bay.

Sorry I didn't clarify. The cabin is closed off from the cargo bed, unlike a Blazer or Scout. The distinction is that the cargo bed body work is contiguous with the cabin body, rather than being separate components, as in a pickup.

Here's a '66 Wayfarer Ute for comparison.

That's not a judgement thing, that's a kibitzing thing. Maybe it's different elsewhere, but Americans who are into fitness are quite often jerks who absolutely cannot let an opportunity pass by without inserting their opinion or advice on this subject matter they feel themselves to be experts in. A more accurate phrase would be "please take your suggestions about my exercise routine or your thoughts regarding my chosen diet and shove them right up your ass, thank you very much," but "no judging" is nicer and more concise.

And that opinion is usually prefaced by "OK, not judging, BUT..."

Right up, indeed.

Thank you, Pope130!! Now I don't have to commit the unpardonable sin of explaining a joke.*



*Back a few posts when I was thinking of committing that most egregious of sins I thought about explaining that a ute was the unholy offspring of an El Camino and a Subaru Brat.

But I think the starkness of your Dodge Rampage photo really succeeds in emphasizing the point ...

like a bludgeon.

Yute, as used above, refers to a person younger than the speaker, especially if the speaker elderly and is from the Western Pennsylvania region.

From your second link. Do you have to add an "ie" to everything? The Bachelor, Bachie backstabbing has already begun. The Bachelor is Bachie now? I can't help the overwhelming feeling that this is what happens when convicts are allowed free reign in nation building.

Yes, we do. Barbie, tinnie, dunny, durrie, cossie, mozzie, maggie, choccie. In fact, we shorten with an ie pretty much every word we don't shorten by adding o. Damo, durro, limo, lino, bottleo, smoko.

Don't judge us.

US audiences have recently gained access to the award-winning documentary "Kath and Kim" that fully explains ordinary Australian life. Look at me. Look at me. Look at meeeeee. I've got one thing to say to you: we're judging the heck out of you.

Don't judge us.
In new news, I just encountered a brand new -o contraction that I've never seen before. There's a cafe near my office that has a placard outside advertising "B&E Roll + Coffo"

B&E Roll is a Bacon and Egg roll - a common enough cafe breakfast item. But Coffo??? That's not a contraction I've seen before. I'm not sure that saving a single letter was worth it.
