fair suck of the sauce bottle
Steady on, be reasonable. This is one of several variations on the Australian exclamation 'fair go'. It expresses a keen sense of injustice-'fair suck of the sauce bottle, mate, I'm only asking for a loan till payday!' Sometimes 'saveloy' or 'sav' is substituted for 'sauce bottle'. The phrase 'fair crack of the whip' has the same meaning.
