    As a dead dingo's donger

    Raymott suggested me a good idiom "as dry as a dead dingo's donger". I've already read what it means. My problem is that I can't understand the literal meaning (I'm just interested, out of curiosity). It seems quite meaningless for me. The main problem is a word "donger". I've no idea what it means. My dictionary says nothing, the urban dictionary says it HEIMERDINGER = HEIMERDONGER (I've no idea what it is)

    The next meaning, that I found, was a "penis". Does "donger" mean "penis" in the idiom?

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    I am not a teacher and I'm not an Aussie either.

    However, as far as I am concerned it is definitely the penis.

    It's amusing as an image, and the alliteration makes it even funnier.
