have one off the wrist

Hi everyone!

This is part of the lyrics to Monty Python's "Brian Song":

and he started to shave
and had one off the wrist
and want to see girls

I just have no idea how to translate that verse. I guess it must be slang, but still I couldn't find anything about it.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Teenage mentality being what it is, I remember in my school days that the simple words "it's in the wrist action" would keep us amused for hours, when in fact it was taken from a TV ad concerning a board game in which dice were thrown.
