frog

frog
I
Australian Slang
1. French person (possibly because the French are famed for eating frog's legs);
2. (obsolete) pound note; £1 (because the Australian pound note was green);
3. road (see: "Frog and Toad")
II
Canadian Slang
derogatory term for French Canadians. More common, however, is "Jean-Guy Pepper," or "Pepper," or "Pepsi," generally attributed to the belief that French-Canadians prefer to drink Pepsi over Coca Cola.
Derogatory term used to describe French Canadians or a French Canadian aesthetic. Extremely rare in the province of Quebec, where "Pepper" is the predominate slur.
III
Canadian Slang
Dreogatory term referring to anyone whose mother tongue is french.
