    Smile English to American Dictionary (Funny)

    This dictionary has tickled me......very useful for any non-British, confused or amused by such words as shag, poof, randy, blooming, Blighty etc...
    covers such important topics as:
    Clothing
    Everyday Miscellany
    Food
    People
    Sex
    The Road
    Appliances
    The Body
    Expletives
    Outdoors

    and includes Scottish words...

    fave examples -

    f.a.g n. Be exceedingly careful with this one. 1. "f.a.g" is a very common (probably the most common) word meaning cigarette. One of the most amusing e-mails I've had concerning this page was from an American who had arrived at her company's UK offices to be told that the person she was looking for was "outside blowing a ***". 2. Almost worse, "***" was used until recently to describe first year senior-school kids who had to perform menial tasks (cleaning boots, running errands and the like) for the seniors. A contributor tells me that he was met with aghast looks when he told a group of New Yorkers that he "was a *** at school last year". Modern thinking on slavery has seen that the practice of "***ging" has all but died out.

    f.a.ggot n. In the UK, a f.a.ggot is a meatball. In the US, a ***got is a male homosexual. In reality, the American definition is known (if not really used) UK-wide, so most of the jokes involving "***gots in brine" have already been made. I am told that in the US the word also means a small bundle of twigs, so the phrase "toss another ***got on the fire" is not quite the incitement to violence that it might seem.

    edit - blimey, f.a.g. is a banned word... he he, i'm trying to give up f.ags, i was on 15 per day till recently !!

    And all this time I thought a floater was a body the coroner
    pulled from the river. I guess by either definition it's still
    something I don't want to touch.

    "Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."

    Think I'll spend the first half of the day Monday firtling about at work. Then when someone says "what are you working on?" I just reply "that new firtle project" and walk away before they can ask what it means. Success! I've found a new way to avoid productivity!
