For those of you having difficulty understanding or misunderstanding slang from different regions here's the thread to post your 'words' and your questions about words.....
I will start:
'Going to the knackers' - means going to the slaughter house. Used like this: 'Our party went to the knackers last night when a riot broke out over the keg running out'
'Knackers' - another term for testicles, used like this 'John was really disappointed when that rugby ball hit him in the knackers'
(Southern Hemisphere - Australian OR Kiwi)
