    Okay. What kind of name is “Ocker”?

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    True Aussies are referred to as “Ockers” … typically those of us who speak with broad Aussie accents, like drinking beer, hanging around at BBQs in our T-shirts, shorts and thongs (aka. flip-flops in Britain).


    It’s pretty much the caricature of the True Aussie.

    Aaaannnnd, plugging the name Ocker Stevens into Google and Wikipedi gives us the Jimmy Banks reference. Doin’ the cartoon old-school, Jason? :)

    Ocker Stevens was a character created by Ginger Meggs creator James C Bancks back in the 30’s .
