Default Speak English! Oh, wait, you are.

It's happened since I was a kid.

I'd watch a British comedy. For the most part, funny.

But there were always those bits, the ones that got the biggest laughs from the studio audience, that got lost in translation.

Or the first two pages of the Sun UK. Page 3, I understood. But trying to wade through one and two? Lost.

Well no more! By special arrangement with Davyboy, I offer you the Dav-o-matic English to English translator.

Merely type in a query, and let's see what happens.

Flashlight vs. torch

The Lift? I don't get it.

Boot? For a car trunk?

Davy says he'll be on this like a shot.

See what I mean? What is the origin of that term?
