Starting out as a private language to fool coppers (grasshoppers) and their narks (Noah's Arks), Cockney rhyming slang has always had a tremendous vitality. So don't be daffydowndilly - take a butcher's at this little Captain Cook. What's more, if you're feeling a bit boracic, it isn't going to break the old iron tank, or empty out your Lucy Lockets. Hundreds of definitions, for not a lot of sausage an'mash - just the thing to amaze your chinas over a pig's ear down at the rub-a-dub.
