Re: RARA-AVIS: Layer Cake--Brit slang

Mark, this is London slang, not Brit slang. Much of it, I find (like most of the population of Britain who don't live in London and, yes, there are some of us) every bit as impenetrable as you do. You might find this website useful: If you look up Jack and Danny, you'll see it means fanny, Brit-slang for vagina. Here, it has nothing to do with vaginas, but is used in the sense of fannying about (wasting time).
