Cockney Rhyming Slang 1

sonnyjimSonnyjim on 01/20/2006

Trivia Quiz Cockney rhyming slang is a form of English slang which originated in London's East End. It developed as a way of obscuring the meaning of sentences to those people who did not understand the slang.

Rhyming slang works by replacing the word to be obscured with a phrase (or just the first word of the phrase). For example, "She's got lovely eyes" would become "She's got lovely Mince Pies".

Now see if you can work out what the following slang phrases - which I've put in 'quotes' - mean! (I've kept it pretty simple.) Have fun!!
