The color Blue is also used as "Bluie" to describe a red haired person on a sports team in Australia. The general rule for organizing a team is that you need at least one "Bluie" since they are presumed to be more reckless and crazier than aother members.

this too shall pass
'bluey' is also the term used for a bushman's bundle, the outside cover of which is often blue. other than that, I understood it was typical Strine foolishness.

Maybe it's one of those things like when you call a small guy "moose" or a huge guy "tiny"

I always assumed that it was due to the bluish cast of skin that some non-tanning type redheads have. No idea why tho'
