that's so colloquial you have no idea

Worse Idea than Australian slang, or compounded too it. before landing in Australia the aliens abduct some English people to get a better grasp of the language. Unfortunately, the people they got, all Cockney with the heaviest accent. So when they finally land, everybody absolutely everywhere is confused, even the aliens

This is a great idea. Related idea - multiple groups of aliens try this with multiple different English-Speaking countries, and get vastly different accents. Somehow, not a single alien gets that stereotypical “Posh English” accent. They also pick up colloquial slang. They cannot understand each other.
