I like it! I am going to adopt the phrase.
This seems way more like Aussie slang than anything else.
I am insulted! Australian? Ugh.
Respect the Aussie slang, you drongo.
The idea of respecting anything Australian goes against the ideals of the Enlightenment.
You telling me you don't think a kangaroo is cool as shit?

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)

Flora and fauna, along with the indigenous people, predate the idea of Australia. Those are all cool. It's the twisted, diseased quasi-culture that was excreted by those who called and call themselves Australian.

Takes the biscuit is Aussie / Kiwi slang.
It means takes the piss as in being unreasonable, being selfish.

I think it is just for politeness, 'that takes the biscuit' goes down better in public than 'he is taking the fucking piss'.
