One of the funniest Benny Hill bits was him interviewed and introduced as "Iva Biggun from Mill Hill".

He corrects, he's "Iva Mill from Biggun Hill".

Is there a Mill Hill? A Biggun Hill?

Do Brits understand Aussies, or have Aussies developed their own thing?

Brits and Aussies pretty much understand each other.

Yeah, the elevator lifts things, I just don't know how you got "LIFT" and we got "ELEVATOR" when it wasn't invented in it's modern form when we had our little disagreement.

And what was all this business about the Olympic Torch?

You guys call a flashlight a torch, but for us a torch is a stick with clothing wrapped around it and set on fire.

Where did that come from?

I know you lot were big on setting fires to castles and such, but you can't actually set much of a fire to stone with a flashlight now can you? LOL

See what I mean? What is the origin of that term?
From the time it takes from leaving the gun to arriving at its target
