Hiya, Naz: I like their definition of "Archer."

The cockney rhyming slang is a gas, too. I once heard a guy say he'd left his "titfer" in a cab. Titfer? Oh, yeah: tit for tat, tat rhymes with hat--so he'd left his hat in a cab.

Love to listen to Allison Fisher talk!

This is my favorite of the A's:

arris Noun. Buttocks, 'arse'... Convoluted Cockney rhyming slang for 'arse'; Ariss, an abbvreviation of Aristotle, rhyming with bottle, and thereafter leading to bottle and glass rhyming with 'arse'.

WTF?? Glass rhymes with arse???I would've never got there... Glad I live in the US
