Put your plates up for two minutes, have a cup of Rosie Lee and some Joe Blake, then take this quiz (http://www.bbc.co.uk/apps/ifl/london/gigaquiz?infile=cockney&path=cockney) and see if you have what it takes to be a real Londoner like me! :D

It's bright and breezy. I got 9 out of 10. That last one had me in a right two and eight. Donald Duck! :fist:

Although I´m not english I scored a fair 90% score on the test. Maybe I was a bit lucky or I just chose the answer that feel right.

Leo Sayer = All Dayer, Tom Cruise = Booze, Boracic Lint = Skint

I donno how, but i got this one right :D

well you're close IG

but here's how cockney rhyming slang works

two words = one word
the second word rhymes with what the one word is.

dog and bone = phone (bone rhymes with phone)
two and eight = state (eight / state)
barney rubble = trouble (rubble / trouble)
apples and pears = stairs (pears/ stairs)
bright and breezy = easy. (breezy/ easy)
donald duck = you should able to guess :D

Ok, just to clear up what I said...

Plates - Plates of meat = feet
Rosie Lee = Tea
Joe Blake = Cake

Paul McKenna = Tenner, i.e a £10 note
Dudley Moore = Score, i.e £20
Alan Whicker = Nicker, i.e £1

which equals 31
