Pants? Oh you must mean trousers.

Click the picture for a link to a BBC article about British English 
words that are becoming more popular in The US and Canada. 
I don't know how true it is but it's interesting none the less.
 (Many of these Briticisms are also popular in Australia.

By the way, 
several of the examples in the above picture are not real. 
For example a "face" is not a "Slappy Ham" in British English. 
That is just a joke.
Can you spot any others that you think are nonsense?


  1. What's "rooty-tooty point and shooty"?

  2. British rhyming slang. Point (the gun) Shoot(y) the gun, and the rooty-tooty doesn't mean anything it just rhymes with "shooty".
