    Probably has Craig, but I need a translation.

    Rich, Russell Brand called Jay Leno a "cheeky bugger" what does that mean? If it is naughty just PM me, please. Sounded funny the way he said it.

    A cuppa is your term for tea or coffee?

    I think I will read the entire thread. My DD loves learning new languages and it baffles the stepfords when I use a unique term. Keep them guessing.

    Did that, read the entire thread and understand most of it. There is a post on page 2, with a rather long list, I don't know any of those/ Post number 128. This is fun.

    I had to laugh reading this thread!!!
    When I visited New York I went up to a cart in Central Park and asked the vendor for a bag of crisps, he gave me a real hard stare and said "speak English Lady!!!"
    I didn't stop laughing for ages
