March QUIZZ – win a ForMentis pen* !

A WINNER HAS BEEN FOUND

Well done Valérie !

The QUIZZ for March

please tell me what this sign says in “real” English ?

This is Cockney Rhyming Slang and all of the expressions are to do with money!

*The first correct answer wins a pen!

♤  ♧  ♡  ♢

Here is an example of Cockney Rhyming Slang as it would be used between two people from east London:

“Allo me old china – wot say we pop round the Jack. I’ll stand you a pig and you can rabbit on about your teapots. We can ‘ave some loop and tommy and be off before the dickory hits twelve.”
