Funny local words/sayings from your neck of the woods

Since we're all from different parts of the country, I thought it would be funny to hear the different slang and sayings you're accustomed to hearing.

Best and funniest sayings receive rep. :)

EDIT: it might also be a good idea if people explain what the word/saying means. lol

"your neck of the woods" - Ive never understood that one :whistling:


Where is the neck in woods?
#2
we always say "alright monner" or "alright mon"

I'm in import to my area around Coventry and Leamington Spa. Moved here from Bournemouth 15yrs ago, via a 2 year stopover in London. The locals here have all manner of sayings. The one I always remember is BOSTIN' which apparently means GOOD.

AND before all Brummies have a moan at me, I know it's Black Country talk, but to a southerner it was funny.

What's that mean?

I'm guessing "don't give a poo" but I bet I'm a million miles off. :roll:

Well the kids pretty much picked up my accent... ( private schooling ) so it's accentless in a way....

Then when they mix with their friends its very London/ Essex/ Romford-ish.

And then they have their Dad's accent too....

so they have quite a mix of external language influences.

Romford is a place in East London/West Essex, broad accent to my ears.... my daughters school is there. Long distance from us, but it's a nice school so they have to travel.
