"Best 2K I Ever Spent!" Honorary Memorial Day Pool Party In London

by SUSANNAH LONG · June 1, 2010

    Ah, London! We were memorializing over here in the States, but the Brits had fun this weekend too. Top notch fun. Disco Pool Party fun.


    In our ongoing quest to honor the nations of the world, we're speaking in the vernacular of the British Isles this morning. We used an online dictionary of British slang and the movie "My Fair Lady." Because we're very thorough on the research front.

    Wotcher, Guvnor.

    They look less cool/world-weary, and more just plain knackered.

    Snog her! Snog her good!

    You're smoking that fag all wrong, love.

    Heh. That madhead.

    Be careful, sir, even the most upright gentleman can be turned into a yob by grog.

    What a dirty Mackintosh Brigade!

    In their scanties and all! (Swim-scanties? Yeah, we're going with it. Swim-scanties.)

    Nice birds.

    Uh. Tenpins. Something with bollocks? Or are bollocks just, you know, balls and not other balls? This is hard.

    Let's go hunt some foxes! Guy Fawkes Day! Crumpets! Other Britishisms!

    Pip pip cheerio!
