So as far as those test went a dog can tell the difference.
Is that so? Hmm. Maybe the bloodhound they used for the test for the fact in my post had a cold?

Anyway I'll add

chips = fries
crisps = chips
pissed = drunk
angry = pissed

and fix the BH thing.

I heard the word, "Bloody", like "Bloody Hell!" or however the British use it is the equivalent to us Americans using the word, "Fcuk". Well...yeah...

Car bonnet = hood
Car Boot = trunk
bum bag = fanny pack

When I was in the states, the woman I lived with had 3 kids, and I said that they needed to hoover up as part of their chores, well they looked up at me inquisatively and then cracked up when I explained it was what I called vacuuming.
