Anyone know the meanings of these?

I didn't know any, but I bet some of the old curmudgeons on here know a few :P

I got 5/10, though I didn't know any of them. Sheer luck or inspired guessing?

3/10, all of them guesses. The only term I recognised was 'slubberdegullion', from a Genesis song, though I'd no idea what it meant (and still don't) :cry:

This jobbernowl got 4/10. I thought my guesses were inspired but they weren't all that.

A bit disappointing.

There was one answer that I so wanted to be right. But it wasn't.
