  • (probably pseudo-) Latin for "swinging the lead"; British doctors' slang for malingering, or seeking a sick note to take time off work. I believe I saw this a while back in an old Eric Partridge slang dictionary. It may originally have been a British armed forces' slang term, equivalent to the U.S. goldbricking
