But I'm sure we're right because we're a pair of crafty sods! :-)

You know my language limitations. What precisely is a "Sod"? We have "Sod Busters" and "Sod Installers", both of whom deal with sods. Your context implies something rather different, however.

It's a contraction of sodomy!
You may refer to me as: Your Grace, Duke Speedy of Leighton.

It is considered pretty tame despite the derivation. A wife might refer to her husband who has lost the car keys as,"a silly old sod", without triggering divorce proceedings :)

Thanks, Ithoriel.

The base language we share (the Anglosphere) is a marvelous thing indeed and trans-Atlantic/Pacific communication often works without a hitch. Sometime, however, one isn't sure if one is tossing a daisy or a hand-grenade.

Thanks to the several clues, I finally got #7 and will celebrate with a craft beer later.
