    Question I am not a teacher

    Hi all

    I, being Dutch, so not a native English speaker, am having an argument wit an American frined of mine regarding the meaning of the expression:

    "I feel like (the) dog's balls"

    In my humble opinion this is not an existing expression, apperently an Australian lady claimed this to be a valid expression. Would anyone care to comment?

    English comes in many flavors. It's probably an Australian expression for "I feel good."

    Or "I feel bad"....

    I feel pretty good because I am important.

    British phrase meaning something is very good.

    "You look the dog's bollocks"
    "That curry was the dog's bollocks"

    As marciobarbalho points out, in Britain, it's actually 'bollocks'.
    See here for more information on this saying:
