: A british friend of mine said to me " How's it hanging?" Does that mean " How's it going?" Before I had time to reply. Another British dude said " A bit to the left, a bit to the right, yeah?" I've got confused. What does that mean "How's it hanging?"

It means "How's it going?" when you're in a mischievous or irreverent mood. You know what "it" is, I hope. Use the phrase when speaking to a woman only when the irony would be understood and appreciated. By the way, this is a pretty widely known phrase in the U.S., at least in the circles I travel in.
