American slang vs. English slang

We sometimes like to think that there is just one kind of English, but closer examination shows that there are so many expressions that are to be found in one part of the English-speaking world only. So if you are one of those who believe they are in total control of the English langage, take part in this competition between Hugh Laurie and Ellen Degeneres and see if you know the meaning of expressions like "flossing", "chin wag" and "ba-donka-donk".
