MR Rhyming Slang

In london there is a group of people called Cockneys. Cockneys use a slightly different but fun way of speaking called Cockney Rhyming Slang. Cockney rhyming slang works by using two (sometimes more) words to rhyme with a third which is the word you actually mean. Ok that is a bad explaination lets look at a few example:

Trouble & Strife = Wife
Holy Ghost = Toast
Rosie Lee = tea
Dig & Bone = phone

Now most often when you use them in a sentence you only use the first word, so stealing PDurrant's example from a previous post:

I was on the dog to me trouble....

meaning

I was on the phone to my wife

Now I thought it may be fun to see what a silly bunch of word crafters such as you lot may be able to come up with for new MR Rhyming Slang terms.

Just a couple more actual ones to give you a few more examples:

Plates of Meat = Feet
Apples & Pears - Stairs
Artful Dodger = Lodger
Fanny Craddock = Haddock
Alan Whickers = Knickers
Pony and Trap = ..... well I'll let you work that one out lol

Mischief and Mayhem = DRM

There are already several common ones for book. http://www.cockneyrhymingslang.co.uk/ is a 'useful' site in this regard.

I like fish hook = book. Taking this one step further (which is allowed), ebooks (electr(on)ic books) are obviously eels.

ha !! brilliant !!!

i'll go with fish hook instead of line and hook (i think i got it into my head there had to be an "and" in there, which is obviously untrue), it's much better !

Totally brilliant

EDIT: if you say it in a Micheal Caine voice it sounds even better

which also contributes another to the list of "crazy british pronunciations" : Cholmondley is pronounced "Chumley", apparently.

beans and rice = ebook device

"I've just got to put some more eels on my beans'n'rice, and then I'll be ready to go."

" ’ave you ’eard? Amazon's bringing out a bigger beans this summer."

(Note that 'a' is correct, as 'beans' in this context is singular.)
