This made me laugh, being a POM i could add so many differant ones to this, especailly as we have so many dialects. That has given me an idea :)

This really made me giggle!

Just to clarify,

Gobsmacked (not godsmacked..maybe a typo) is what we say when something happens that is unbelievable and your lost for words/amazed by something.

A quid is actually a pound coin!

Loving the site by the way!

Cheers!
