Brit' Word of the Day

Today's BWOTD is one of my fave' Brit' words:

"Oh he just talks a load of old cobblers" or "That's just cobblers"

'Cobblers' = Nonsense

The only time I ever hear the word cobbler used over here is in relation to a fruit (Apple/Peach) cobbler and we call those a fruit (Apple) 'Crumble'!

Still in use.It is a great word. You'r introducing a whole heap of slang your way. Be interesting to see if these words filter down the generations there.
