London? Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup 'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins... LONDON.

Any of you who happen to be fans of movies like Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Layer Cake, or any other British gangster movie you probably find yourself asking, "what in the world does that mean?" or "what the hell did he just say?"

Anyway just thought I'd share a couple of interesting articles that explain some of the more confusing slang that are employed in these films and ones like them.
