Actually we affectionately call them "Roo-Bounds", metres are Walla-jumps", a foot is a "Bootstomp" and an inch is a"Toadhop".
When I was in primary school and I had the hots for Sheila Williamson (before that bugger Bruce Barmington got to her), our teacher Miss Pitts used to measure us up against the tuck-shop wall and say things like "Caw! Bugger-me-with-a-bricklayer! You've grown you little bastard! You're a six toadhops a coupla bootstomps and a full wallajump! Pretty soon you'll have the silvery seagulls pooing all over ya! You little bastard"
