I was quite surprised when I first heard that Us term because of the
difference in meaning.
Just to be utterly confusing too, the term fag which I understand in the us
can be a short form in the same context as faggot in the uk is simply a
slang term ffor cigarettes.
In fact in the web game improbable island where cigarettes are a major
currency, there's actually a full disclaimer on the subject sinse they got
British players talking about wanting more fags which obviously didn't sound
right to americans and caused quite a lot of controversy.
Beware the grue!
