"Pants" in England means underwear. I found this out after telling a girl I liked her pants. She must have thought I was such a creep! In terms of legwear, they just use the word "trousers" instead.

Well I am English and I only got 7 out of 10. Plonk was confusing as I thought of plonker which is also reference to a mans willy.

I remember "plonk" and "pukka" from a recent Merriam-Webster.com slideshow on British slang...and "knob" I remembered "Bridget Jones' Diary," heehee. Some of the slang is, amusingly, what it sounds like.
