"Knob" was left out. A grievous omission, I feel.

I'm sure Americans know the word faggot, Robert...although if you asked them if they'd ever eaten one you may get some funny looks.

Phil Collins used the word in an episode of Miami Vice, at a time when network US tv was highly regulated-I believe it still is. I remember when he was interviewed about it he said he suggested the dialogue to the director; he agreed, without taking the trouble to ask what it meant! https://amp.theguardian.com/tv-and-r...actors-jamelia

That's just a "whiner", isn't it-- someone who complains incessantly?

Gareth, is twpsyn related to twp? Hale and Pace used to do sketches where a man kept asking, "Ooh, what's that, then? " "Ooh, how does that work, then?" etc and I believe this man was known as the twp man.
