lug'ole

n
British
ear. A common term of the 1950s and 1960s which now sounds folksy or dated, although the comedian Frankie Howerd employed 'pin back your lugh-oles' as one of his catchphrases. Lug has been the commonest colloquialism for 'ear' outside London since the 16th century. It originated in Middle English meaning flap or ear-cover, from an older Scandinavian word lugga, meaning to pull.
