quicko: bucking the trend

I know I've touched on this before, but I've got updated information here: Australians don't actually understand the terms "bachelor/bachelorette party" -- they would obviously apply them to the correct gender, and probably have a good idea of what they involve, but wouldn't necessarily know to place them immediately prior to someone's wedding. (They'd use buck's night, or, in England, stag's night.)

And, as another interesting point of note, when referring to the actual male deer, Australians should know both terms, but would be more likely to use "stag."
