anything said like "it's the <animal's> <anatomy>" generally means that it's good; the bee's knees, the dog's bollocks, etc.

Tits in general, used in slang, is good. "Oh man, that's totally tits."

Exception: "The electronics shop down the street went tits-up."

And there's a phrase in Latin that the Ancient Romans used to use whenever they realized they had made a mistake:


Errare humanum est...... :wink:


Translation:

To err is human.


Actually, the full phrase in Latin goes like this:


Errare humanum est, perseverare autem diabolicum.


Literal translation:


To err is human, to persevere in erring however is of the Devil.
