The BuzzFeed UK team sent me (a clueless American) the following British slang terms from across the ocean and I was tasked with guessing their meanings. This is my terrible attempt to decipher British culture:
“A bit naff” has been given the correct British definition, because the American couldn’t even get the real meaning right.
- A conservation group at Oxford University told BuzzFeed News that media reports of Jericho's death were not true and that the 11-year-old lion was "alive and well".
- More debris – believed to be part of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370 – has been found washed up on the Indian Ocean island of Réunion on Sunday.
- A Memphis police officer was shot dead on Saturday night while conducting a routine traffic stop, according to a statement from the Memphis Police Department.
