It was intentionally ambiguous at best.
It's a battle for a large order, what do you expect an 'It's not cricket old chap' attitude. Look we have even sent a piece of totty ? to butter you up.

Sorry Tim, so just for you :-


"totty
ˈtɒti/
nounBritishinformal
noun: totty

girls or women collectively regarded as sexually desirable.
"the group on the table next to us were blatantly checking out the totty"
a girl or woman, especially one regarded as sexually desirable.
plural noun: totties"


You will of course have noticed that I did put a question mark after the word when I used it. As they say 'Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder'
