The above, a recent Stuff website heading, sadly now voguish with Stuff. Why?
I’ve never ever heard anyone utter this inanity.
I’ve poked fun in the past at rugby players in particular, answering post-match interview questions with “yes – no,” idiotic to be sure, but far removed from “yeah nah.”
“Yeah” instead of “yes” is commonplace, particularly with the working classes. My company would certainly never employ anyone incapable of saying “yes.”
But “nah?” For God’s sake! Why is Stuff promoting this? One thing I’d wager is the sort of cretins who might say it in lieu of “no” could not tell you what a newspaper is if shown one.
