What does 'I'll give it a lash' mean?
It's an Irish turn of phrase (maybe English also) which means I'll give it a proper good go - but also means it's not that huge a deal to accomplish - so it means, I'll make a good passionate effort but at the same it doesn't really matter - think it comes from lashing your horse to get a bit of extra kick - giddyup boy!

By 1860, New England produced almost 70 percent of the cotton cloth made in the U.S. and its cotton mills. The invention of the cotton gin by Eli Whitney in 1793 came just three years after Samuel Slater built his cotton mill in Pawtucket, the first automated cotton mill in the U.S. By increasing de…mand in the North and productivity in the South, the two technologies worked together to increase cotton production exponentially - and with it, the number of Africans who found themselves in slavery. Choosing cotton grown by slaves tied (the mill owners) into the cotton economy. They were businessmen and they saw their mills as a way of providing employment throughout New England. About 3.8 million slaves produced almost 4 million bales of cotton in 1860, four times the number of slaves and 40 times the amount of cotton of just 40 years earlier. (MORE)

Monkey's Uncle - Originated in 19th century London. Derived from the (Darwinian) idea that descendants of monkeys i.e. humans are more intelligent and thus that monkey's ancestors must have been less intelligent. Used as an expression of surprise. When using the phrase "I'll be a monkeys uncle" …then the above explanation is accurate. However, when someone says "I don't give a monkeys uncle" the source is more likely a reference to money (notably five hundred pounds which got it's origins from the old Indian 500 rupee note that had a picture of a monkey on it). . I'll assume it's from the debate between Darwinism and creationism. Maybe around the time of the Scopes monkey trial. Some wag on the creationist side suggesting that the unimaginable may be true. As strange as being related to the apes. (MORE)
