This is pretty enjoyable heres a good one...

"bell end n. This is the end of one's nob, which devoid of a foreskin looks not completely unlike a church bell. If you don't have one to examine, ask a friend or neighbour."



As a Scot who has spent some time in the USA on holiday lately, I have discovered a bewildering array of words which are in common use on our side of the pond and invariably mean nothing at all or something exceedingly rude on the other side. I once noted down about fifteen of them and that afternoon formulated them into this dictionary. Since then the dictionary has thrived (well, lived) on contributions from readers and is steadily growing into a decent reference.
