Language – American and British Slang

I guess I’m off my game when it comes to slang. I was only familiar with one of these expressions, “chin wag.”

  1. The only one I knew was “chuffed.” (And I, too, watched Fry & Laurie in Jeeves and Wooster. Which is fabulous, by the way. I can’t recall whether I knew the expression before that.)

    I love that “flat” joke shared by A Few Good Cats! It’s perfect.

  2. Shawty? Sorry. I used to watch Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry in Jeeves and Wooster, so “chuffed” was not new. There’s a song called “Honky Tonk Ba-Donk-Adonk”, so that’s another familiar one.

    Two countries separated by a common language: “She criticised my apartment, so I knocked her flat.”
