  1. It's older slang in The US, but we called money "bread". It's more like urban slang from the 1970's. I wonder if it comes from "Bread and Honey".

  2. Here in the north of England we say "Chevy Chase" not "boat race", and "Giraffe" not "bubble bath".

  3. "Time to get down to brass tax" is a common phrase in America and I never really knew what it meant. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

  4. "Skive"?? How is "skive" a better version than "duck and dive"?? What does SKIVE mean?! None of this cockney stuff makes any sense…I thought you spoke English!

  5. Am sorry but I can't see your videos with out thinking in you totally naked. I blame my self for that.

  6. Im Australian and Dad uses frog and toad quite a bit. Dont mean to state the obvious but Its interesting how much Oz has inherited from the UK.

  7. They left out some of the rude ones, ones that are in widespread use. Hampton, Berk, Jodrell. These, of course, do not rhyme with the words they represent but I leave it your filthy imaginations to work out what they mean.

  8. Cockney is so hard, even tho I know how it sounds with nuances still Im unable to immitate it.

  9. 0:00–0:02 It sounded like as if he said 'Cockney Rhyming Slag' instead of 'Cockney Rhyming Slang' lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. I love East End geezers like this one ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ DAMNNN SEXY ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’ฆ (Cockney Accents all the way, I love it #Myfav ๐Ÿ’ฏ)

  11. That guy is sooo sexy and a super turn on for me especially @ 0:50!! Hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜

  12. If my English teachers makes me learn this, he'll be brown bread

  13. it's crazy how this started as a way to talk without someone knowing your business and it has carried on to this day.

  14. Cockney Rhyming Slang is coming back in a big way because if internet censorship…

  15. normally you'd drop the second bit ( the rhyming bit) while at work in the garage you hear ….." pass me that Elsey" (Elsey tanner = Spanner) translation "please be so kind as to pass me that wrench" as all good slang- its a way to communicate with those in the know and excluding everyone else ….also good fun!

  16. Here's the kicker though, from what I've seen in pop culture the rhymes for a specific word are more or less the same, barney rubble is always trouble. Could you emphasise the amount of trouble by throwing in a second rhyme? ''This geezer pony trapped(crapped) his Alan Whickers knowing the deadly wobble barney rubble he was in!''

  17. Penny Stamp= Tramp, Sexton (Blake) = Fake, Vera & Philharmonic = Gin N' Tonic, Kettle = Watch, Richard (3rd) = Bird, Gregory (Peck)= Neck, Ochestrals (stalls)= balls, Peter (Sellars) = Cell, Minces (pies) = Eyes

  18. Why do so many of these sound like euphemisms for dick & balls?

    Anyways, I'd love to stroke his ball and chalk. :0

  19. I do enjoy the video as many others of yours Anna ๐Ÿ˜Š I guess you probably don't know that I am Polish. I have also finished English philology and I understand your accent as well as Love English UK Leila's and Sabrah's accent ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง However, the Cockney accent (I am not talking about the funny slang/code that has just been presented) is so foreign to me that I would say that Cockney is other language than standard English. That's how my Polish indicrinated brain perceives Cockney ๐Ÿ™ˆ Greetings Anna and All the Best ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

  20. had now idea until just now this where "bread" for "money" originates from ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Isnโ€™t anyone else saddened that they didnโ€™t mention Hank Marvin = starving! Hahah

  22. Chelsea
    Enough with the Cockney with my Mitchell
    You're confusing him
    And pissing him off
    Tee Hee
    I love you my beautiful sister
    Carlene

  23. Brilliant.

    Sheโ€™s a hilarious parody of a linguistic educational programme from the 70s/80s.
    Sheโ€™s having a Turkish !

  24. I am going for a ball and chalk to the rubber dub dub for a pigs ear
    I am going for a walk to the pub for a beer
    I am cockney

  25. Lot of new "non original" slang, but it is evolving and new words get used for new generations. However one point to note is the middle link word should not be used in speach… that's the idea. Traditionally apparently It's in case you're overheard by the authorities. If you know the code you know the middle word and get the connection.
    So road is just frog. Not frog and toad. the other guy knows the rest.
    They now also "double up" by adding additional words. So now people say "down the kermit" which means road
    So it can be Kermit (the frog), (frog and toad), road.
    Or cat is now used for phone… cat (and dog), (dog and bone), phone.

  26. It's a fun concept for inventing new slang. I would have guessed you called a pub a battle cruiser cuz drunk sailor frequented it.

  27. Okay okay I finally got it by "bottle & glass" after using context clues, got it now, fanks!

  28. Brass Tacks made it's way into American slang too. "Let's get down to brass Tacks" = "let's get down to business/details/facts"

  29. The nursery rhyme pop goes the weasel is full of Cockney rhyming slang…It basically about going out getting drunk spending your money and pawning in your coat for ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ ๐Ÿ’ฐ

  30. Once I got trapped in a box by a cockney nutjob.
    Had a cup of tea

  31. Like this if u sent this to a friend who isnโ€™t slang and u r proper cockney ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”>

  32. I feel like Iโ€™m having a stroke. Theyโ€™re speaking English. But I have no goddamn clue what theyโ€™re on about

  33. A few nights ago his roger iron busted. He's gone down the battle cruiser to watch the football. No one's watching the custard,
    so he switches the channel. A fat geezer's north opens. He wanders up and turns the Liza over.

  34. a native told that isn't a proper English though and it doesn't make sense

  35. I definitely want more, please. Thank you. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸโญ

  36. Take a ball & chalk. Take a walk. Yes this video is a good one. A big thumbs up ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸThanks.
