Do you speak Cockney?

“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.”
Have you ever heard a British person talk, and it totally doesn’t make sense? Well, on my 3 trips to England, I always came across some very interesting slang. Some were just British Historical references… but the hardcore East-Enders in London speak Cockney Rhyming Slang!
Here is another dictionary as well: http://www.cockneyrhymingslang.co.uk/
