quicko: bog standard

Very dully normal. As in, "it was a bog* standard week."

Although I heard this precise phrase spoken by a very genuine Australian this morning, it was later called into dispute by another very genuine Australian who had never heard it.

And there you have it: a bog standard post.

*Bog has multiple meanings in Australian, but we remain unsure whether the intention in this phrase is closer to "swamp" or "toilet."

Closer to "swamp" than "toilet".
