    @Ian2: I think it was the word 'fag' -- means something quite different over the pond.

    @JohnAskew: 'Fag' -> 'Cigarette'. (And 'Faggot' -> 'Small piece of wood; kindling').

    Also faggot is a type of northern England sausage.

    This is one set of words best to be avoided.

    "Back of envelope" please.
