    Crust of Bread nor Alderman's Nail.

    This is great fun (aka This is mother's pearly gate fan!)


    I daan't 'ave danny la rue
    wot i'm talkin' abaht.
    But i'll give it a Scapa Fla anyway.

    I golden dove ya in the Day's Dawnin'
    I 'ope ya kna wot i'm sayin'.
    It's Potatoes in the mould
    in the buff to need a quilt.
    I fall on the bloody Rory
    after dreamy Posh n Becks.

    Then I open me mince pies
    And clock me teddy bear.
    I switch on the bloody Hansel and Gretel
    and 'ave a Bruce Lee
    before I tickle and bite the next verse.
    I can't 'andle this.
    Where's me Everton Toffee?

    Oh Delta, I can tell this was fun to write... but I have to confess I hardly understood a word of it.

    mould in the buff = cold enough
    mince pies = eyes
    posh n becks = sex
    hansel & gretel = kettle
    Bruce Lee = wee
    everton toffee = coffee

    It makes no sense to me either! I'll get back to being serious soon...

    This sounds naughty to me. That's probably just me, cause I have a tendency to think naughty (doesn't everyone, really), made it hard growing up Catholic...oops! no pun intended.

    Even if I don't understand it correctly (mostly based on a reference to a book character Rory??? in British romance novels) and clocking me teddy bear (what a great phrase, is that akin to spanking the monkey?)...no?

    Anyway, it was as good for me as I'm sure, as Prince stated, it was for you.

    It was fun. I found a cockney rhyming slang translator so I can't even tell you what I originally wrote...

    It reminds me of a poem of neologisms. But maybe that's obvious. Very interesting.

    Actually, it's potato mould = cold; it's usually abbreviated to taters.

    Dunno what's 'appened to the summer this year. It's atserlutely bloody taters out.

    'In the buff' is just slang for 'naked' (which I didn't think was peculiar to Cockney, now I think about it).

    You may have got hold of one of those Cockney slang dictionaries that's in fact a load of famblies.

    famblies = family plot > rot


    There's a Goodies annual where Graeme Garden provides these examples:

    Apples and pears = stairs

    Apples and peaches = beaches

    Apples and stars = cars

    Apples and paint = faint


    I wish they'd bring Minder back
