Lol, lighten up people. Most of these obviously aren't serious. Damn Brits getting all offensive.

Some people don't have a sense of humour. Most of these were jokes.

This is so crap. If I ever use the term "wishy-washies" please pull out a 'rooty-tooty point and shooty' and kill me...

I am so using the term whimsy flims now. Like, no one will know what I mean. But it sounds so much better than pen.

It started well, but I've never heard of Wishy Washies (windscreen wipers) and the last four should be blueberry pancakes, pen (ballpoints are nicknamed Biros after a popular brand), ice lolly and gun, or pistol.

This list probably isn't serious, though.

Although some of those are obviously incorrect, as an American, I would never have known if someone didn't correct it. It's like someone telling you to say Me gusta perros to mean I love cats in spanish (I know that is incorrect) and no one ever corrects you, you sound like a fool. In short, don't take it offensively when American take this seriously, we just really don't know. If I see something that says "in Britain we call windshield wipers 'wishy washies'" I have nothing other than that to go on, although I will think that is incredibly stupid.

On a side note, what do you call biscuits, if you call cookies biscuits?

I did like rooty tooty point and shooty. I assume this is a joke and Americans don't really think we have the vocabulary of a three year old for everyday objects otherwise. They're windscreen wipers for a start. and people who are not from London don't use any form of rhymig slang, its not a generic British thing. In fact most people from London probably don't.

For all you mockney roosterneys out there
Pistol = Lady from Bristol, Pen = Layin Hen, Face = Ricky Gervais, Windscreen wiper = Billie Piper...
In English gun=Pistol, Pen=Biro, Popsicle=Lolly

Example of a mockney = Christian Bale.
I'll stop now.
