A lot of water has flowed under London's bridges since the first utterances of rhyming slang. Who started it and why we'll never know, but whoever it was couldn't possibly have known the verbal monster he or she created would still be growing centuries later. In the bestselling Cockney Rabbit, Ray Puxley compiled the definitive Dick 'n' 'Arry of cockney rhyming slang. With his inimitable blend of humour and facts, he serves up More Cockney Slang, a kotchel of contemporary rhyming slang straight from the streets. Gathering the funniest and most widely used phrases of this new generation of expressions, and with Melvyn Bragg, Anthea Turner, Gianluca Vialli and even Holyfield's ear making an appearance, More Cockney Rabbit is unlike any dictionary you've ever read. Try it and bunny like a native.
Ray Puxley is the author of the successful BritSlang (ISBN 186105534X) and Cockney Rabbit (1861057296) books, also published by Robson Books. He lives in Essex.
