Meaning of chach

chach means: (ed: have added this verbatim - I have no idea if it's serious or not, but since it's Californian - and weird - it could well be true! Personally I'm quite happy with saying 'orange orange'.) Chach describes the color of something that is orange. It's very confusing to have the color and fruit both have the same name, and sounds stupid to say, "Hey, look at that orange orange!" Also, a foreigner might get confused when they hear "Look at that orange book," and not see any fruit on the cover. In order to clear up the whole mess, this new word describing the color previously known as orange has been invented and spread about Northern California, and now everybody knows what it means and is grateful for the substitute word. It needs to be spread to the rest of the world, appeasing the minds of all others who speak the English language, and the word 'orange' no longer has any meaning when dealing with color. "Hey, look at that chach orange!" Doesn't that sound much better? something to be 'chach', We are grateful for the word 'chach', and this should be a big step in informing others and should soon become a common word everywhere, and the word currently used for the color, 'orange', will be erased from the world of adjectives forever!

Meaning of biscuit

biscuit means: £100 or £1,000. Initially suggested (Mar 2007) by a reader who tells me that the slang term 'biscuit', meaning £100, has been in use for several years, notably in the casino trade (thanks E). I am grateful also (thanks Paul, Apr 2007) for a further suggestion that 'biscuit' means £1,000 in the casino trade, which apparently is due to the larger size of the £1,000 chip. It would seem that the 'biscuit' slang term is still evolving and might mean different things (£100 or £1,000) to different people. I can find no other references to meanings or origins for the money term 'biscuit'.

Meaning of scabs

scabs means: Potato crisps, or chips (as opposed to French Fries). As in "All we 'ad were a pint and a bag o' scabs". Actually first heard in Torremolinos, Spain on a coach excursion, uttered by a lad from Bradford to some mates. Also often overheard in Leeds in later years. Interestingly (?) - observed on the above mentioned Spanish coach trip - a cinema showing 'Adios Senor Chips'. (ed: I vaguely remember a dreadful song from the 1960's - 70's of which only the refrain 'Torremolinos, Torremolinos' has stuck in my head. If anyone has the slightest idea what this song is or can provide lyrics etc I'd be very grateful! I wonder if it was a Monty Python song?)

Meaning of maggie/brass maggie

maggie/brass maggie means: a pound coin (£1) - apparently used in South Yorkshire UK - the story is that the slang was adopted during the extremely acrimonious and prolonged miners' strike of 1984 which coincided with the introduction of the pound coin. Margaret Thatcher acted firmly and ruthlessly in resisting the efforts of the miners and the unions to save the pit jobs and the British coalmining industry, reinforcing her reputation for exercising the full powers of the state, creating resentment among many. When the pound coin appeared it was immediately christened a 'Maggie', based seemingly on the notion that it was '...a brassy piece that thinks it's a sovereign..." (ack J Jamieson, Sep 2007) If you have more detail about where and when this slang arose and is used, please let me know. I am grateful to J Briggs for confirming (March 2008): "...I live in Penistone, South Yorks (what we call the West Riding) and it was certainly called a 'Brass Maggie' in my area. Typically in a derisive way, such as 'I wouldn't give you a brass maggie for that' for something overpriced but low value. It never really caught on and has died out now..."
