    Here are a few from an old episode of the Two Fat ladies:

    faff

    lurgy

    slag/slaggerd (sp?)

    honking
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    On Craig Ferguson last night the guest said he did not want to "slag up the Germans" so that is funny. Thanks Rich, hope the hands feel better. Soak them in water with Epsom salt it takes the pain out somehow.

    Hi Rich
    Don't forget that Honk can also mean smell bad, as in - this cheese is really honking.
    Or is that just a southern thing?!

    We say honking big here in South Alabama, as in, "that was a honking big steak".

    Let's see...

    Let me have a lok at these words what Graig left for me... I must admit, I've never heard of them all!!

    strike ? - As in football to score a goal.
    mank ? - something which is horrible.
    toot ? - Like blowing you car horn.
    sponny ? [DUNNO]
    lug ? To carry something heavy around.
    fawce ? Cunning, crafty, conniving.
    sken ? [DUNNO]
    eggwap ? [DUNNO]
    meither ? It means bothering/pestering some one.
    yedwarch ? Headache (?)
    (and you don't need to tell us what thrutch means !) - [DUNNO]!!!

    Oh - any wazzums in your praters, you nig nog? [DUNNO]



    I'm guessing, Graig that these are very old Northern English words since I haven't heard of them all!!

    well, a skein is a roll of yarn? Maybe that is what someone meant? It's American English but maybe its English English also.
