Hi Ziners.

An american friend of mine made her first trip to Australia some years ago and met up with a group of Aussie cyber friends there. One morning as they were leaving their hotel rooms and getting ready to go somewhere my friend said, "wait, I have to get my fanny pack". They went hysterical in laughter.

In Aussie speak, fanny is slang for a woman's genitals. They informed her that the correct Aussie terminology is a "bum bag". She's never called it a fanny pack again!
