nope - he's not. it's quite common here (still crude, but common) Funny though how certain words are completely innocuous in one region, yet, the opposite somewhere else. For example, "fanny." Here it just refers to a tush, yet, when we went hiking w/ a friend from Australia , another friend (female)was telling him to mind his step at a certain area because it was where she had fallen, "flat on her fanny," previously - to which he requested we not use that word. And my sister's ex-boyfriend - also Australian, would go around calling the cat by saying, "here pussy, pussy, pussy," which to US just sounded wrong. He thought it was perfectly fine. So, whatever.
