Warning: Budgie smugglers spotted on the streets of MelbournePosted: July 23, 2012
Not sure how well known outside of Australia is the ‘budgie smuggler’. It was coined a long time back with the manufacturing of the Speedo bathers – tight fitting racing style men’s bathers. Some say it is an adaption of the English term ‘grape smugglers’. Either way, I think you’ll agree with me that budgie smugglers conjures a more humorous image.
