    Default British vs American slang

    I found this video amusing:
    YouTube - Hugh Laurie: the British accent vs the American

    Hugh Laurie and Ellen Degeneres take it turns to see how much of British/American slang the other knows.

    I've run through the comments and found out most British/American people don't use those slang words much. However, one might find it good to be aware of their existence :)

    P.S. I especially liked "chuffed to bits by your ba-donka-donk"
