That's right, being british I feel it's my duty to educate the world on a very important topic. British slang.
So tell me any british words you know along with definitions, and I'll tell you if you're wrong or right.
Alternatively, if there are any british words you don't quite understand - just ask and I'll clarify.

This belongs in the off-topic section methinks.  I know plenty British slang words seeing as I'm British.  I could do one better and tell you about Scottish words too.

Cheerio can also be used as a greeting.

Even though I speak fluent English, I often can't understand what they're saying at all when I watch something like Monty Python or other British media.

That makes no sense! There are no eggs on french toast, just syrup.
Unless I've been making french toast wrong all these years? *gasp*

I've heard more Americans say it more than British. I say it sometimes but I didn't really think the second word had a meaning.
