Scroll down about 1/3 of the way. [Canuck, Mar 16 2010]

Not sure whether this could be used for making ice, though. [Canuck, Mar 16 2010]

is noggin some kind of drink?
-- po, Mar 16 2010


Wait, so the icecubes are shaped like buns & bones, or made of buns & bones?
-- victory, Mar 16 2010


[victory], the icetray is shaped so as to make icecubes shaped like buns and bones. I was figuring buns down one side and bones down the other, or something ...

[po], noggin = head. Or is it a "Gulliver" y'all call it in the U.K.?
-- MikeD, Mar 16 2010


Noggin is prefectly good UK slang where I come from but I also use the rare terms kip (sleep) and nipper (young child).

[+] a niche market-segment to be sure, but something to use while halfbaking on a hot summers day in conjunction with a fishbowl glass and a solar-powered curly-straw.

gulliver?
-- po, Mar 16 2010


I dunno, [Po]. I picked that up from "A Clockwork Orange", where Alex explains to the truant(?) officer that his absence from school is due to "an intolerable pain in the gulliver".
-- MikeD, Mar 16 2010


you can't rely on Clockwork Orange as a source for slang - Burgess invented a lot of those words.

I never knew, [Po]. Now I find myself doubting Guy Ritchie films aswell. Does "Blagged" *really mean Robbed?
-- MikeD, Mar 16 2010


Blagged = conned or swindled (ie no force used)

I think Ikea does the bone ice trays. The bun trays will be much harder to come by, although I think Ikea may also do stars and crescent moon ice trays, so you might have something there.

I'm going at Easter - I'll have a look, and if they have any I shall buy them. And some gin and some tonic. yes.

Not quite. If you blag something it means that you persuaded the owner to lend/give you it, possibly under false pretences. E.g. I blagged these tickets for the Cliff Richard gig by telling them that they were a present for my poor, sick, old mother.

Noggin, kip and nipper are all in use here too.
-- DrBob, Mar 16 2010


Isn't that what con or swindle mean? As in "I conned the shopkeeper out of a quid by telling him I could get that wine cheaper in Tesco's". I'm less sure about 'swindle' - I don't use it much. I've always assumed it meant quite a large fraud.
-- wagster, Mar 16 2010


[Wags], swindle is more small-time (at least when used in the U.S.). A "heist" is of a grander scale.
