I’ve been listening to Absolute Radio ’00 out of the UK recently and was confused by their traffic reports. Apparently there is always a broken down Lorry somewhere and I didn’t know what a Lorry was. For all I knew there were these really bad drivers in London who were all named Lorry!
So I decided to look it up and after mis-spelling it a few times I came across this YouTube clip of Ellen and Hugh Laurie trading American and British slang which is pretty funny.
They don’t cover what a Lorry is, which I later learned was a freight truck. My apologies to all of the drivers in the UK who are actually named Lorry, I honestly didn’t think that your driving could be that bad.
