“Will the term “Coogee Bay Special” be added to the Aussie vernacular, meaning an item of food or drink that has an unappealing appearance, taste or smell? An example of its use would be “my sister-in-law served me a Coogee Bay Special”, that is, she served me an item of food that I turned my nose up at.”

Angela Jackson Blair Athol, letter to the Sydney Morning Herald.
