Never said 'whilst' in me life, sounds silly and very la de da for Patsy
Not a English slang term but what about having a Faggot on a cold English Morning.
Sets you up for the rest of the day.
Or you smoke 20 FAGS a day and die young.
Ah yes, I imagine to make the distinction between ginger-beer and your term.
That reminds me when I lived in Hungary I saw quite a few license plates that said FAG, obviously it's not a word there.
@Tom Galty , what is a faggot in this case?
Burning ember, or alternately "Singing Flame".
Cigarette also known as a fag.
Also known as a meat ball
A great English Meal.
Not true.,..that's an urban myth , and I've seen many non Brits mention it online..but that's not the saying at all..
Knocking someone up here , is a slang phrase for getting someone pregnant... to knock someone up..or to be knocked up...
The saying if someone is calling for you at your door would be '' I'll knock ( or call) for you at 8''..not ''knock you up''!!
How about You are a Jerk
Means in the UK you are a masterbater
Many years ago, a snotty punk told Sydney Poitier to "get stuffed", in the wonderful film "To Sir With Love".
I wonder what he meant by that?
It simply means ''get lost'' Frank... it's in very common usage by most people here ...
Gee, I was expecting far worse.....as likely most of the American audience was. It seems that movie plot took place in UK.........I could be wrong, but the school kids talked like Brits. Is that bad usage?
The film was made on location in London... in the 60's..
Not sure what you mean about 'bad usage' Frank... explain..
I meant in this new era of political correctness, might you object to the word "Brit"?
oooh lol...No...thank God, it's one of the few words everyone is still allowed to say without it being a crime...
