"If you’re going to decipher Brit. speak about cars remember the boot is our trunk, the bonnet is our hood, the wind screen is our wind shield, a spanner is our wrench, petrol is our gasoline, left is our right and the manuals incomprehensible."

Additional Brit speak: "loo' for toilet, "macintosh" for raincoat, "pullover" for sweater, "anti-clockwise" for counter-clockwise, "pissed" for drunk,"blow me" for surprise me, "knockers" for breasts, "posh" for high class, "take a piss" is make fun of someone, and the classic "spend a penny" means going to the restroom.

And "Asian" means anti-social Muslim immigrant.

And you use rubbers AFTER you make a mistake (erase pencil scribblings).
