Half of these are total bollocks

This was clearly made by an American.

Slapper originally meant someone who applied make-up in public. Which essentially was considered to be something whores did between Johns.

We say fivers and tenners over here in the US. We just use "buck" instead of "quid".

**gwinny rolled image** I'm so glad that specified Londoners because I'm English and we don't use half of those terms in other parts of the country

I hate to be "that guy" and yes, I am a Brit but a few of these aren't entirely correct; Britain is much more Americanized than you think, and many of these are just different dialects.

1. Cookies are small, flat baked pastry, biscuits are small baked bread or cake.
2. A butty is one of the many names for a "bread roll" (Others include: Baps or cobs, and a few others that slip my mind). A sandwich is usually just something in between two normal slices of bread.
3. Chips are basically the same as fries, but much larger.
4. "Cuppa" is dialect, yet I've never actually heard it said in reality.
5. Peckish is used when you're not hungry enough for a meal, but could want a snack.
6. Cozzy is short for swimming "costume".
7. Knickers are female "panties", although we mainly just call them pants, regardless of gender. Knickers is usually used to refer to stuff that is very girly (usually with lace and/or frills).
8. The **** is a muffler? It's a scarf.
9. Pants. See 7.
10. Never heard "barmy" used in reality, have heard "daft", but rarely.
11. Didn't even know the word "radge" existed until now.
12. Slapper and slag basically mean slut.
13. I've personally used all the slang except for "zonked", and for ***** we usually just use **** or crap.
14. Chemists are the people that work in drugstores, or "pharmacies".
15. The only time I've heard "dosh" is on a bad loan advert.
16. We just call them "plasters" in casual conversation.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and there was actually a few "Americanisms" that I didn't know.
Thumbs up.
