Trumps are disgusting, tbh.

What it means in America: Potentially the next president.

What it means in Britain: A fart. Wind. Gas. American people entertaining the notion of « President Trump » is akin to the next British prime minister being called David Fart. No one would take him seriously; there's no way he would've made headway in politics at all, let alone come within sniffing distance of the leadership. The sooner Americans get wise to the true meaning of the word trump, the better.

What it means in America: Feisty, spirited, plucky. As in, « my niece is spunky ».

What it means in Britain: Covered in semen. If your niece is spunky, you're not going to tell people about it.

What it means in America: A policeman or policewoman.

What it means in Britain: To grope. In Britain, you might cop a feel of a boob, a willy, or a bum, but seriously DON'T do this. Copping a feel is a creepy thing to do that'll make you seem like a sex pest.

What it means in America: It's just a good, wholesome boy's name. Probably the name of that sweet-natured boy you got the school bus with.

What it means in Britain: Horny – but in a ridiculous, enthusiastic, comedy way. A dog is randy when it tries to hump your leg. Poor American boys called Randy. To us Brits, it's a really stupid name. Sorry.
