GUEST,Dazbo at work BS: Those handy UK expressions... (270* d) RE: BS: Those handy UK expressions... 25 Oct 07


Would USAians be offended if a small boy was called a cheeky monkey? A phrase commonly used over here for a mischievious child rather than naughty.

I've always heard spitting feathers as being furious not thirsty.

Can't remember - have we had mutton dressed as lamb for, particulary, an older woman dressing like she's a lot younger than she is or my own variation on this being lamb dressed as mutton for young women dressing like their grandmothers.
