Aussie Slang: Shocking
Aussies love to use the word "shocking". If something looks bad, it's shocking. If the gravy is lumpy, "Oh, mate, that's shocking." If your buddy gets a bad haircut, "Oh mate, that looks shocking." Apparently, in Australia, everything is so great and wonderful all the time, that anything that looks bad is shocking. Maybe they just get surprised here easily.
