Bettys Are No Pillocks
Knickers in a Twist: A Dictionary of British Slang
Sure it's no bosom augmentation voucher,... but still!
Now I'll have a handy way of deciphering common, everyday Britishisms such as:
"I say horses for courses if he wants to get up to some bit of jiggery pokery." (To each his own if he wants to be up to untrustworthy behavior.)
"She was keen as mustard to gen up on geegees." (She was very enthusiastic to study horses.)
"The gaffer was ready to pop his clogs when he saw his daughter running around like a blue-arsed fly." (The old man was ready to die when he saw his daughter running around like a chicken with its head cut off.)
Seriously ladies, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was an honor just to be missed...
