Would You Rather Be...? Pork Chop V.s. Lemon
Would you rather?
The would you rather questions are some of the more entertaining and character-defining riddles one can ask. They can align characters exactly where you thought they would be, or completely throw off your compass reading of them.
In Australia, it's known that the language and accent create quite a challenge for foreigners to understand what the hell is being said. Aussie slang is up there with the language of Mandarin, as the most difficult to acquire.

Define: Pork Chop
In colloquial terms, one would be called a 'pork chop' if they were to conduct themselves in a manner that is foolish, stupid and/or inappropriate.
The expression is a truncated version of a lengthier, nastier origin (look that up yourself). Although many Australian slangs reconstruct nasty into merry, being called a 'pork chop' is not a favourable description to be proclaimed.
'Pork Chop' Example:
- "calm down mate, you're carrying on like a pork chop".
- "oh bloody hell.. Jacko's here.. he's a pork chop".
Informal/Colloquial language again, a 'lemon' is reported as a person or thing that is defective, imperfect or unsatisfactory; a dud.
If you've been labelled a 'lemon' you must have completed incorrectly completed a certain act of idiocy.
- "Ah nah that one's a lemon"
- "Can you stop dropping crap everywhere you lemon"
Throughout generations 'pork chops' and 'lemons' have existed and will continue to exist. If you've ever been called one of these terms you'd understand the level of pure anger it inflicts internally.
On the flip side, if you've had the pleasure on dishing out one of those terms to a deserving 'pork chop' or 'lemon' you would have felt a rush and satisfaction similar to that of a full-strength disco biscuit on new years eve as the clock strikes 6am.
