fat bird’s armpit, wetter than a: sim. An expression used by meteorologists when talking about excessive precipitation. ‘Northern areas, which we have represented on this weather map at an angle so that the distance from Nottingham to Aberdeen occupies the same amount of screen space as the gap between Exeter to Plymouth, can expect a mild, dry morning, with scattered sunshine. However, don’t organise any barbecues just yet, because during the early afternoon, this large area of wet air moving in from the Atlantic will meet this high pressure front over the Pennines, and by teatime the whole fucking country will be wetter than a fat bird’s armpit.’
