Note the Window Licker entry was also a correction.

Also the traditional English swear words persist extensively in certain middle class circles and even in the criminal underworld - "sod" at least is still fairly common.

Itchy Beard - An expression expressing disbelief. "Hey mate I'm getting a Nissan Skyline next year!", "Itchy beard, you couldn't afford a Nova".

Also I would prefer you just delete whatever bits u didnt like because I think some of the points such as nonce being a paedophile not a grass were quite important and you should correct your broken descriptions.

Man: "Hey kid, don't go near that guy, he's a nonce"
Kid: "Oh, that's OK. I read on h2g2 that a nonce is an upstanding member of the community who puts dangerous criminals away. I think I'll go and thank him"

Yeh maybe not. But it's still important not to confuse those two - which was the intention of whoever applied it to police witnesses.
