So boys, you've just gotten to Britain, so I thought we'd play a little game. I'll name
some sort of phrases from around the UK and Ireland too, maybe, and you say them back
and try to work out what they mean. Okay? Okay.
Right, Newcastle. "Shy bairns get nowt."
Is it like I'm dipping and this place is lame? I'm dipping out, peacing. I'm leaving? Shy
bairns. Ooh, is it like unleashing the beast?
Yeah, shy children get nothing. So it's like saying, if you don't take a risk...
You gotta be a risk taker. That's good. I like it.
They might say in Wales, if you had a sister, "Oooh, your sister is *** tidy."
I'm afraid. I feel like I would punch them in the face. Is it like your sister is super
banging and you wanna... they wanna do it with your sister or something. That's definitely
a bop in the nose. Your sister in *** tidy? That's my sister, and that's your sister!
Chloeeee, I know your sister is *** tidy.
I'm going to finish on a Scottish one. Alright. Scottish.
"Dunnae teach your granny tae suck eggs."
Wow. That sounds like something uh, man what is that guy, Gerard Butler would say. I've
never... I've never taught my granny to suck eggs, no. That's drastic. That's kind of a
weird thing to do. Sucking eggs!
The egg is a metaphor, I think.
Ohhh..."Dunnae teach your granny tae suck eggs." It's don't try to teach someone something
they already know.
Oh, actually there's one. There's a Mancunian one, actually quickly.
When you wake up in the morning and you're in Manchester, they might say "would you fancy
a brew cocker?"
A brew cocker? Did you just... Would you like a brew cocker? Is it a beer in the morning?
Are you hungover? Is it coffee? What would it be here? Tea. You're right. Aw, man. They
ask if you want some tea because you're hungover from the night before. Whoo! I got one. 3
And cocker is you know, like mate or something. Mate, oh like... these cockers.
