Pants = trousers (whenever they say on american tv "I'M NOT WEARING ANY PANTS," means totally different thing. I still get confused)
Panties = knickers (i absolutely HATE HATE HATE the word panties, you know there are words that really get under your skin? Halfway through a stephen king book he says it and I just winced)
Mom = mum (mom looks stupid to me)
College = University (college in BE = what you do after GCSES, i.e. like the equivilant of junior and senior year)
Courgette = Zucchini (i've NEVER understood that one)
init, izit, aite, pussy, tw*t, *******s (or is that just 'cos I'm from Essaaaax?)
In Hazza P's american version they tried to put things like "crikey" in so it would feel more british but an american would understand it... like, no one says crikey really.
I have a tendency to say "trufaxblud" but that may be just me
side note - I hate it when americans say "OH MA GOD I LAAARV THE BRITISH ACCENT" when there's so many accents all over the uk (to name but a few just in england: scouse, mancunian, brum, cornish, geordie let alone all the welsh, scottish and northern irish ones - well, not many of the latter) and what americans REALLY mean is "omg I love the received pronunciation accent." jussayin'.
