I hate to break it to you, but these words are very, very rarely used in the US.

An American would not call it a loo, or talk about his / her bum. We go on vacation (we have holidays like the 4th of July). Cheers was a TV show.

We use alternates to "bloody" when cursing.

Mate? (go talk to an Aussie for that one)

Austin Powers shags, we f*#@.

Then there are several I have never even heard of. (numpty, innit, kit)

Well, mates. I have to head to the loo and check me bum. Don't think me a bloody numpty if I go on holiday and shag my bird instead of checking back here.

Call me a bit naive but aren't most of the words the Yanks use British?

I mean: isn't it called the "English" language?

At least we don't pretend to go for a rest in the restroom, or a wash in the washroom.

^ The picture i have is of protest groups being set up in America,

"SAVE OUR AMERICANESE, FROM THE BRITISH"

Protests, Demo's, March's on the Senate, etc.

By the way we speak the Queen's English, in this little old country of ours. Laughing

I grew up using "Autumn" and "fall" interchangeably (in Ohio) and always loved the song "Autumn Leaves" (which was originally a French song (Dead Leaves) but an American wrote the English version of it)

"Bum" I picked this up living in Canada and still use it.

"Flat" Moving about the US due to military, I often found the word used vice "apartment". Mostly in the East and mid-west parts of the US

"Kit" Picked this us training at the Canadian Forces Bases

"Roundabout" -- several places where I have lived called those "traffic circles" roundabouts.

"Pop Over". British MIL used this, but I think of a popover as something baked in the oven.

Another thing I picked up in Canada, was using the word "runners" to mean gym shoes. Don't know what the Brits call them. But we were always told to take off your "runners" at the door.

IM_Dumm is right this article is BS Americans do not use these words unless they are talking in a fake British accent. Or if you are Madonna and spontaneously become British.

Definitely "cheers" but that is almost universal at this point in English speaking countries. "Twit" is used, but doesn't have a British connotation over here. No "Gap Year", "Numpty" or "Kit" (outside of soccer teams who love to imitate EU mannerisms and sayings). And we would never say (or spell) "queue" when "line" does perfectly well.

From the Regina Monologues:

Quote:
Marge: That was very sweet of the Queen, letting you go in exchange for taking Madonna back to America.
Madonna: I'm telling you! I'm English!
Marge: English women don't pump gas naked.
Homer: See ya in Atlanta, jerk.

It always makes me snigger when Americans are interviewed on the wireless or television and throw the odd "pissed" into the conversation.

The blushing broadcaster has to inform the interviewee, we haven't quite caught up with them on that one yet.

Come to think of it, Scandinavians love to throw "sh!t" casually into the conversation when given the same opportunity.

We love to phone up Auntie Beeb (The BBC) and complain about swearing more than anything. Laughing

That might be right now that you mention it. But i do not think that i swear half as much as Americans or Irish. I might be wrong though.

I think pissed in UK is "Drunk/Intoxicated" while most of us americans say "pissed" to me "upset/angry"

Of course I was playing poker with two guys from the UK and one said "I think I am going to go outside and smoke a fag" and the other said "I think I will join you" - now that will have an entirelly different meaning to some than others!

But I know in the eastern US we use "Roundabout" of those damn "traffic circles" that have become popular recently..

I like the way US female tourists visiting the UK refer to their 'Bum Bags' as 'Fanny Bags or 'Fannies'

A 'fanny' has a slightly different slang meaning over here & it can lead to some 'unintentionally hilarious misunderstandings'.
