English Romany word for money. Originally means burning embers and in other european Romani dialects 'angaar' still has that meaning. In 18th and 19th century English 'coal' also meant money. Wonga is the romani calque.

A term in reference to larger women who belive they are sexy. It comes from the fact that good mates will pay £260 (the price of a loan from a short term instant lender) in return for having sex with someone exceptionally fat. Often predatory, they tend to pick on young lonely males. There BMI is over 30 and they tend to be between the ages of 27 and 40.
