Funny how this recent conversation about "seppos" all stems from a case of mistaken nationality. Jim Carrey is from Ontario and a full-blooded Canadian!

What would the Ozzie rhyming slang be for him now? "Dumpo"? (Canuck > truck > dump truck > dumpo)

Apparently it's going to be very close to the original, except for a few things like more lifeboats, air conditioning, etc. and a helicopter landing pad!

As for the cost, the guy planning it is uber-rich. Here's a decent article from last week:

Good distinction. I keep forgetting Jim is Canadian. But his nickname is now 'Dumpo'!
