    Uh, in the UK, a Hand Job is a euphemism for acertain solirary activity. So the mind boggles when you mention ‘hand job review, with samples’ !!

    Fair enough, it’s just that I’ve seen other UK slang used in American magazines in ways that makes us Brits laugh out loud. And asking someone for a shag at a swing do for example, will mean something very different to those not aquainted with swing dancing and the lesser known dances from Carolina.

    Keep it clean, chaps. Don’t want to give the ex-colonials the wrong impression! Mr. Nack, please accept our very British apologies.
    From an ex-pat in Holland.
