You knew I'd have no idea what that means! Yeah, Google got me a street in London, but I still don't know what it means.

haha, sorry, I always forget that no one understands my figures of speech. Just think how much you've learned from me these past few weeks.

It's a street in Soho, London. There's a large gay community there...

I though since it was the theatre district that it was a suggestion that he was too dramatic in his comments.

I'm going to make it my mission to post a cryptic, Scottish or British colloquialism every day

I feel tempted to write an English music hall-style number called "I Got the Shaft on Shaftesbury Avenue" now.

Anyway...

that's cockney rhyming slang, Glaswegians have their own but they tend to use a LOT more expletives.

People from the central belt of Scotland use language that would make Bernard Manning blush. The "C-word", which is regarded by most to be the most offensive word in the language, is actually used as a term of endearment in Scotland. It's also used interchangeably with the word "guys".

So, for example:

"Do anything exciting at the weekend Bob?"
"Na not really, me and a couple of c**** from work got a pint on Saturday, that was about it."

or

"That Chris Rock is a funny c****!"

and so on. Can be quite shocking for people that aren't from here.
