Hampton Wick

Hampton Wick is Cockney slang for Prick (penis).

Hampton Wick is a pleasant village in South West London, near Kingston upon Thames and Hampton Court.

However it has become synonymous with the pejorative term "prick".

There was a character in famous radio comedy The Goon Show named Hugh Jampton. This punning name shows how Cockney Rhyming Slang still retained some it's "secret language" characteristics into the 60s and 70s.
