The human body generates a lot of slang. Maybe it's because bits of it are always playing us up. Anyway, here's a quick run-down from top to bottom. See if you can work out what all these slang mean:
On yer Loaf of Bread you've got your Barnet Fair (or maybe a
Syrup of Figs). On yer
Boat Race you have yer
Mince Pies, King Lears and
I Suppose. In yer
North and South you've got yer
Hampstead Heath. Yer
Loaf sits on yer
Gregory Peck, which sits on yer
Noddy Holders. If you're a woman you might have
Bristol Cities (or
Thrupenny Bits) on yer
Bristol and West.
We've all got a pair of Chalk Farms poking out with a pair of
German Bands at the end. In yer
Derby Kelly lives yer
Newington Butts. Don't eat too much in case yer
Fish and Chips start expanding.
In the Screaming Lord Sutch area, the menfolk have a
Hampton Wick, which is what he uses to have a
Jimmy Riddle or a
Gypsy's Kiss, under which his
Orchestra Stalls (or
Cobblers' Awls or
Niagara Falls or Albert Halls) live. The ladies are blessed with a
Morris Minor (or a
Struggle and Grunt) instead. Male or female, we've all got a
Bottle and Glass (also known as an
Aris) at the back with which we can have a
Yer Plates of Meat are at the end of yer
Scotch Eggs, and yer
Bromley by Bows at the end yer
Scotches. And that just about sums up the Cockney parts of the Body!
Here's our list of terms from the dictionary that are money-related. If you've got
any more, sling 'em over!
