I swung by Dictionary.com to check the official definitions.I'm afraid to ask, but feel compelled: What do they mean when they use it in relation to the U.S.?
It is rhyming slang - Septic Tank = Yank.In Australia, they take it one step further in crypto-meaning by calling Americans "Seppies"
Jeff's right - it's the whole Cockney rhyme game. And as you might suspect, it's a bit pejorative.
