Definitions -- Blithbury & Epping

Cached from http://folk.uio.no/alied/TMoL.html#anchorE

A look someone gives you by which you become aware that they're much too drunk to have understood anything you've said to them in the last twenty minutes.
EPPING (participial vb.)
The futile movements of forefingers and eyebrows used when failing to attract the attention of waiters and barmen.
The precise value of the usefulness of epping (q.v.). It is a little-known fact than an earlier draft of the final line of the film Gone with the Wind had Clark Gable saying 'Frankly my dear, i don't give an epworth', the line being eventually changed on the grounds that it might not be understood in Cleveland.
