Default Bollocks.....

How many words can we get away with using that mean nothing here, or vice versa.

I was driving along today and had to turn back around and snap this pic.

A woman did come out of the building looking puzzled. When I explained why I was taking the pic and what it meant she was shocked/horrified/amused. Turns out her boss (the owner of Bollocks Masonry) is English. He must be laughing his off everyday.

I've removed the number so they don't get inundated with calls from people just wanting to hear some California cutie say 'bollocks' obliviously.

Yeah, seem to remember some guy posting a while back. Apparently he'd had a stressful day at work and announced that he was going outside to have a long hard suck on a fag. Priceless!

You have to be careful if you ask someone to bum a fag off of them
Not many get the two finger gesture, they think it's a peace sign. I was first greeted by my girlfriends younger sister by that one. I don't think that many understand wanker either....
but what about American words that we don't understand....
