A slide by any other name...

Would be called, "a slippery dip". If you lived in Australia that is. I've lived in Australia for 10 years and this is news to me. See what you can learn on ABC Kids?

The view from the top is still very much the same as it was when I knew it as "a slide", but the potential for fun seems to have increased exponentially.

That's the key to the Aussie spirit...same stuff, funnier names.

Heh, the first time I heard the phrase "slippery dip" I thought it must be one of those slides you can put in swimming pools. I was really confused as to why it would be in a playground lol.
