Until now there have only been two types of dictionaries. Big boring ones and pocket-sized boring ones, both about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike. Billy knows a bit about words because he talks a lot so he's put pen to paper and written a useful dictionary. He explains the meaning of words you can actually use - like cocko, frothy and hammered - with translations of chick words and new-fangled teenage words, essential for smooth sailing with the missus and the kids. Billy's doing his bit for history too, preserving phrases so they don't go down the gurgler, like hunky dory, fair suck of the sauce bottle and bee's dick, and he makes sure you don't make a goose of yourself by getting the words wrong. Good one, Billy!
Billy Brownless is a football legend. He retired in 1996 having played 198 games for the Geelong Football Club, including four losing grand finals. He likes to remind people that he once kicked a footy 80 metres over a silo, and booted the winning goal after the siren in the 1994 qualifying final. Billy is a regular on Channel Nine's The Footy Show and Sunday Footy Show, and co-host of Triple M's 'Rush Hour' drive-time program. He lives in Geelong with his wife, Nicky, and their four kids.
