I was too amazed by your dog breaking land speed records to correctly recognize "pillock", but it seems to be a magnificent example of a Welshism/Englishism.
Last week, the subject of curling came up, and older Swplet wanted to know, "Is it really that popular?" I said, "It is in Canada." Then, when we were in Buffalo last weekend, we came upon a show called Men with Brooms that depicts the adventures of a curling rink (You aren't supposed to call it a team) on and off the ice. I said, "That's how huge curling is in Canada."
Before that was a show wherein figure skaters pair up with hockey players and skate for the charity of their choice. It took me a few minutes to figure out that Patrice Brisebois was a guy.
