Cockney Rhyming Slang in Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels

After putting the call out yesterday for your best examples of cockney rhyming slang, our good friend in London Paul Cosier reminded us of this scene in ‘Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels’. It’s a fantastic example of some of the lingo’s finer point that thankfully comes with subtitles. But be warned, expletives are another staple…. parental discretion definitely advised!

After watching, let us know your favorite example of cockney rhyming slang, either in the comments below, on facebook or on twitter. The best one will win tea and scones for two, as well as a tin of our very own Rosie Lee tea to take home!
