    I also did not recognise the slang he did not recognise. I call bad research

    The story of Fanny Adam is so horrible. Don’t goggle it. Poor child

    The real and most common SE England slang for this totally bogus “all bum and parsley” expression would be “all mouth and trousers” – preferably pronounced “mahf ‘n’ trahzers”.

    Fluff? No – can someone tell Americans what the British word for fart is? It’s a TRUMP!

    0:21 “Did you just fluff?” I’ve never heard this one spoken by anyone here!
    2:11 “You’re all bum and parsley” – I think that this is Scottish slang specifically, but I’ve never heard it spoken either!

    In my travels around this wee island my favourite slang word comes from the West Country and its “Gurt”
    When I lived there for a spell I quickly learned it’s a word used to say something was better than expected. For example ” I went out last night, met this girl and she was gurt gorgeous”

    As a Brit, I can confirm nobody in Britain has ever used ‘fluff’ for fart

    But did he have “eyes like a shithouse rat”?

    Yeah, avoid the fluffy farts and bottom parsley. The rest is sound.
    Anorak is just really old.

    I knew what “Bob’s your uncle” translated to, but am curious about it’s origin. Any anoraks out there?
