Aris

Aris is Cockney slang for Arse.

"Up yer Aris!"

Aris is one of the very best examples of Double Slang. This occurs where a phrase is turned into a rhyme, and later that rhyme is then turned into another rhyme.

In this case the phrase Bottle and Glass became rhyming slang for Artse. Then Bottle because Aristotle, which was finally shortened just to Aris.

It proves the wide acceptance of Cockney slang that these doublings can evolve over time.
