How are GIS and Spotted Dick Similar?

Friday, December 18th, 2015

 

Its quiz time. Try out the following, what do these statements mean?

For my American friends: “I’m peckish. I could murder a spotted dick!”

For my British friends: “I’ve been feeling ornery all day.”

For my American friends: “That girl has a fantastic boat race”

For my British friends: “Fred keeps complaining his suspenders are killing him”.

And the translation:

For my American friends: “I’m hungry. I’d love some dessert!” (spotted dick is a delicious dessert)

For my British friends: “I’ve been feeling grumpy all day” (ornery is a real word, which when spoken sounds like horny)

For my American friends: “That girl has a beautiful face” (boat race is rhyming cockney slang for face .. race=face)

For my British friends: “Fred keeps complaining his braces are killing him”. (suspenders are garters in Britain)
