    this is a copy and paste from a dvd extra of the movie"lock,stock,and two smoking barrels"

    Forged in Victorian England by the working class laborers, appropriated by the underworld, Cockey Rhyming Slang is ideal for those who wish to talk amongst themselves: secret societies,brotherhoods,gangs, and the like. Suppose your a rob roy in a read-and-write over river ouse....
    All right, Let's translate:
    Rob Roy=boy
    Read-and-write=fight
    River ouse=booze
    So suppose your a boy in a fight over booze. When telling the story to another lad who's up on his cockney rhyming slang, you can communicate that much quicker(and more in secret) by doing what the natives do: dropping the rhyme portion of the phrase.

    Therefore:Adam and Eve it or not
    Becomes:Adam it or not

    Here are some random examples:
    english words-------------------Cockney Rhyming Slang abbreviated(and full rhyme)
    Believe--------------------------Adam(and Eve)
    Church--------------------------Left(in the lurch)
    Deaf-----------------------------Mutt(and Jeff)
    Geezer--------------------------Lemon squeezer
    Kiss------------------------------Heavenly(bliss)
    Pint(of ale)----------------------Ship(in full sail)
    Here are some of icons:
    Chevy Chase-------------------Face
    Mickey Mouse-------------------Scouse
    Brad Pitt-------------------------Shit
