RARA-AVIS: britishisms: bollocks and dogs

I might have missed an answer to this already (I'm getting behind with email again ... sorry!) but just to clarify, if something is 'bollocks' [eg
'that's just a load of bollocks', 'X is talking bollocks' etc] then it is
*not good*. However, if something is deemed to be 'the dogs bollocks' (eg:
'White Jazz is the dog's bollocks') then that is high praise :-)
