Berks are Such Knob Jockeys

Just started playing with this "British American Dictionary" -- a service of the BBC.

I recommend selecting "insulting words" and "England" from the pull-down menu.

I'm not really sure its purpose, but it sure would be handy for traveling American jerkwads who want to understand what a waiter in a London cafe is saying about them.

I'll bet it's mostly to inform Americans of the superiority of British insulting skills. I mean, Shakespeare started the tradition, and whenever I watch BBC shows I am completely blown away by their gorgeous similes and metaphors of insult!

But that's just me.

Yeah, I'll confess I'm a little jealous of their cutting wit.

Damn those -- those -- I don't know what to call 'em.
