I came upon this British slang site while browsing the internet. I'll admit it's a bit interesting, but how do you keep all this straight in your head?? Here's a sample of it.

Filter Tips Lips.
Example: "Not a dickie has past my filter"
Fine and Dandy Brandy
Finger and Thumb Rum
Finsbury Park Mark
Fish Hook Book
Fish 'n' Taters Laters.

Yank, only a few of these are actually used at all. The majority (97%) have been made up to appeal to the US gullability that we all either speak like the gentry or pearly kings and queens...
I second that from GQ. If you happended to be taking a stroll down the Old Kent Road, firstly you more then likely have a death wish, secondly you are not in East London so try and get to within earshot of the Bow bells for that authentic cockney lilt yet but thirdly most people would look at you as if you were insane.

In fact I think one of those is directly lifted out of Lock, Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels
I use a fair bit of slang but only usually say the first word as in: skin, skin and blister=sister

babe, its your skin on the dog.

dog and bone= phone

Having said all that.....thats actually about all i use!!

oh and dont believe a word dick van dyke says because..........(whisper, he is american!) :D
