OCKATOO - The cocky parrot

Australian sulphur-crested cockatoo cartoon character. Downunder an 'Ocka' is an uncouth, uncultivated Aussie who tends to overuse slang (colloquial) expressions, such as "It's cactus!" meaning something is dead or broken. They also have a penchant (not a word they would use or even understand) for puns and wordplays, and rhyming slang, such as 'Joe Blake' for 'Snake'. Ockatoo spends most of his time watching TV and commenting on anything that amuses him and making appropriate (or inappropriate) comments.
