A word Americans use to describe an English or British person. Comes from when British sailors used to eat limes to avoid scurvy. Although some entries have described the phrase as derogatory, it's really not that offensive at all, certainly nothing like the N-word, for example. It depends on the context, if the American uses it affectionately, the Briton should have no reason to be offended. If the American uses it while hurling abuse and expletives at the Briton, than their whole tone is what's offensive rather than the use of the word "limey".
American: Hey there limey, how's it going in England?
Englishman: Fine thanks, are you alright?

Cab Driver: What, no tip? You cheap limey cocksucker!
Englishman: Well in Britain we don't tip EVERYONE, you Yank twat!

To break wind. A slang term from England that isn't used that much anymore because "fart" is more widely known and the word usually comes to mind quicker.

In Britain (there's already loads for definations for the way Australians use this word), this word generally means a young male. However in modern Britain this word has come to mean someone who engages in typical testosterone-driven behaviour such as drinking, sport and having a laugh with mates, sometimes harmless, sometimes obnoxious or even worse antisocial. There was once the phrase "Jack-the-Lad" (a rogue), "laddie" has long been part of the Scottish dialect, and in the 90s something called "Lad-culture" arose, where the aforementioned behaviour was celebrated. Girls who behaved in a similar way were called "Laddettes". There is also the adjective "laddish".

A known member of an organized crime gang in an English city, the term probably started in London. A bit like a "made guy" in the Mafia, someone to be weary of and treated with respect.

A less vulgar way of calling a woman a "cow". Johnny Speight, the creator of the classic British sitcom Til Death Us Do Part made this one of the catchphrases of the cantankerous bigot Alf Garnett (the inspiration for Archie Bunker) who constantly called his wife of many years Else a "silly moo". In the era of Mary Whitehouse this allowed Alf to be verbally abusive to her without actually swearing (although he often used the swearword "bloody").
You silly moo!
