Quirks Of The Language

Heath Ledger shocked American audiences by talking about grabbing "weenies" with his male buddies whilst wearing "thongs". The Australian actor, 25, stunned host Regis Philbin with his antipodean colloquialisms for having a hot dog while sporting flip-flops as he detailed the way he bonds with his male pals over Christmas. Ledger says, "I was promoting my film on The Regis and Kelly Show. "Regis asked me what I did Down Under for Christmas fun, so I told him that me and my mates liked to put on our thongs and grab weenies and look at the world go by, and that was our perfect way to male-bond. The whole audience just went silent, and Regis was all frantic gesturing for a commercial break. At the break, I explained that in Australia, Christmas is our summer and thongs are flip-flops, not G-strings, and I meant putting hot dogs (weenies) on the barbie (barbeque)."
