slapper n person on the prowl for anything they can get. Anything. The word is applied more often to females, arguably because it is a built-in function of blokes and doesn't deserve a separate word. "Slappers" wander around the dance floor looking for the drunkest blokes and then, when they've found them, woo them by dancing backwards into them "accidentally". The are invariably spotted at the end of an evening telling the bouncer how lonely they are and trying to sit on his knee.
Dr Who is a great show and it is often filled with a bit of British slag which leaves the average American dazed a confused. In the recent Dr Who episode, The Unicorn and The Wasp, featuring Agatha Christie, we are treated to several bits of Brit Slag from the Doctor's most recent companion-not his girlfriend-Donna Noble. When she sees a man she suspects is gay she tells The Doctor-All the decent men are on the other bus. When she emerges from the Tardis dressed in 1920s fashion she asks the Doctor-What do you think? Flapper or Slapper?
Donna also makes reference to Noddy-and while the Teletubbies have established a stronghold in America, Noddy & Friends has not really caught on. It is still good to know that Noddy is not real.
There was also the wonderful bit of business about The Colonel being killed in the Library with a Lead Pipe. And it is always good to see Felicity Kendal. This may be the best of the New Dr Who episodes so far-well, except for that silly giant wasp.
