COR BLIMY (BLOODY HELL) WOULD HAVE BEEN BROWN BREAD. (I WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD.

Just slang sayings.Like up the stick. (SHE IS HAVING A BABY)

Actually it's not just a slang saying like "up the stick."  It's Cockney rhyming slang, whice requires the last word of the slang phrase to rhyme with the word it represents.  The equivalent saying (albeit a relatively recent coining) is "Keith Cheggers" (rhymes with "preggers") meaning pregnant.

 

Other examples would be:

 

"Apples and pears" - stairs

"Flowery dell" - cell

Maybe our British members on here can translate, as an Aussie and member of the British Commonwealth I'm not sure what the headline means.  

 

Brown Bread is generally considered better and healthier for you so is he complaining about thais?  Then I look at the photo and interpret something to the contrary.  What on earth does the headline actually mean?

It means that if the Thais had not found him he would be (Brown Bread = "Dead") .. its Cockney rhyming slang from London son ... 25 years man an boy I have understood it son  ";0)

there is a great early film "None But The Lonely Heart" 1944 with a  young Cary Grant who plays a miscreant  cockney in East London.  Grants character explains how the sentences are constructed to his love interest in the film.

If he would have had trouble on the bone he would have been found earlier, or maybe not at all, depends

Not to downplay the involvement of the rescuers, but I don't think the fact that they were Thai really had anything to do with it.

 have to ask why not, there didn't seem to be a bunch of russians roaming around ready to save him.

Did you read the story, not just the headline? The article explains in the last sentence that brown bread is slang for dead.

Yesterday the head of the local spa association Sitphasu Thongsuk was the latest high profile visitor giving Paul the opportunity to tell Daily News how much he loved the Thais.

 

And a cheap advertisement for the spa of course... why on earth would they otherwise be interested in a "burnt-out, broke"

ex wannabie?

Did you read the replies, not just the comment? The answer to this question was given twice, already.
