    Alty & Levy are standard Mcr school slang. Sounds a bit daft when you're a grown up, but it's authentic enough. Abbreviation suited old-fashioned graffiti that had to be carved into desks & train doors with a compass. 'Manny' sounds odd to me, but the youngsters are all over it currently.

    Odd random query today, while walking down Tib Street. A short-ish chap asks me if I know where 'Brass Hat' is. I said no, because I'd never heard of. He then elaborated and said it was 'the shagging place' while doing that fist pump thing with both arms by his side, presumably to simulate thrusting.

    I was quite perturbed that he thought I would know where the local knocking shop was. :D
