Coming up milhous? Is that rhyming slang? I love rhyming slang, though, being American, I hardly understand a word of it. On an episode of QI Stephen Fry gave an example of second generation rhyming slang: somehow Listerine meant anti-American -- something to do with antiseptic...so brilliant, but I forget how it worked.
