The Anonypooh-to-American Dictionary...
does not yet exist. However, this does: http://english2american.com/dictionary/p.html#pikey, and it's damn funny!!! *L*! Sorry, Jules, there's no "billy-no-mates" in there, but it does have this for "pikey":

pikey n. The nearest thing we Brits have to "white trash". Pikeys can be easily recognised by their track suits, Citroen Saxos with 18-inch wheels and under-car lighting, and their pregnant fifteen-year-old girlfriends.

And I guess you were right about this one, Jules (and if you want to hear Adam Clayton use it, you'll have to go to the original citing in the site; it's worth it - *G*):

wanker n. To wank is to masturbate and to call someone a wanker is not, as you might expect, altogether complimentary. It's really pretty rude in the UK which made me rather surprised when Adam Clayton of U2 said it at the end of a Simpsons episode. If you don't believe me, listen up. Apparently Phil Collins also got away with it in his cameo appearance in Miami Vice in 1984. Any others?

Oh, look! A reference to "Goonies"! *L*!:

willie n. In the UK, willie is a rather childlike word for penis. The film Free Willie no doubt attracted large optimistic female audiences when it was released over here. Possibly not as many, though, as the 1980s US film "Goonies", which a contributor tells me concerned a group of children who found a secret pirate-ship, commanded by a fearsome pirate named One-Eyed-Willie.

I could post more, but... it's more fun to go there and browse - *G*.

And just a reminder to watch the trailer for "On a Clear Day" (http://www.livejournal.com/community/bboyd/480724.html) if you haven't already, you dozy pillocks! Third time I've watched it and I've finally figured out that one person says "You got the boot, too, you dozy pillock!" to Billy, when he says it won't be the same at work without him. And, god, the part where Billy looks down his jeans with concern (apparently after swimming in cold water - *G*) - *L*! And, finally - there's a certain scream that I bet will remind you of Pippin's scream when the firecracker went off - *LOL*!!!!!

AND... lilith's posted a link (http://www.sonician.com/live8/list.html) to where you might be able to download Live8 videos (if it's cooperating), like (*winks*) Placebo... The Cure... Travis... Snow Patrol... *G* Got your interest, f-list? [ETA: It worked for me. Right click and save. They're LARGE files, and I was worried that the one I downloaded - Snow Patrol's "Run" - would freeze there, but it hung up for a while and then finished. Also, it may read 99% at the bottom, but really be done; try navigating away from the page - it might prompt it to finish it. And - it was a brilliant video!]

The bit with Billy looking down his pants! I SO want a cap of that part. And I noticed the scream, too. Very Pippin-y. I loooove all of the shirtless scenes as well. <3 Hopefully there will be some way for us in the States to see this film.

This is looking even better than I'd hoped; all the main characters look to be well-played, and Billy's getting to do a more rounded comic role. I definitely hope so, too!

bam_a_lam posted some caps at the bboyd LJ - maybe she has the pants one? *G*
