George the Third may have been a great monarch but in this book, well, let's just say you wouldn't want him on your carpet. Stephen Fry may occupy a top place in the acting and writing professions, but in this production he must settle for a spot in a pie and mash shop. Other strange bedfellows include Donald Trump, Brad Pitt, and Egon Ronay, who are often found in the Frank Zappa. Country singer Patsy Cline (line) and racing driver Niki Lauder (powder) get up people's noses and the less said about James Blunt and Paul Anka the better! Ray Puxley, a true cockney lad himself, provides an expert guide through the streets of this sparkling, cheeky, and occasionally outrageous language. Not only is this a "dick 'n' arry" (dictionary) of slang, but origins, dates, and relevant trivia that place the phrase in context are explained, as well as a fascinating introduction on the origins of slang. You'll probably recognize lots of words that you use but don't realize that their origin is in rhyming slang, such as "Toe-Rag." With The Complete Cockney Rabbit you can't go Pete Tong so make a cup of sweet pea and a slice of Sexton Blake and settle down and enjoy this fascinating volume.

Rhyming slang is an integral part of the English language and has been so for the best part of 200 years. The most popular belief is that it began as a secret language of the underworld, formed to confuse the 'peelers' and the casual eavesdropper. The truth is that although its origins are confused, it is still very much alive and used today, with new phrases being coined and dropped into the language all the time. In "Cockney Rabbit", Ray Puxley, born with Bow Bells ringing in his ears, has collected together all the old, familiar expressions, along with many new terms - some recorded for the first time - to create a sparkling, authoritative and highly entertaining dick'n'arrry of this ever-popular form of speech. With this book beside you, you need never be confused by Arthur Daley again!

In true Cockney style Ray Puxley has produced a wonderfully entertaining and authoritative A-Z of the best of British slang. Combining a rich source of old familiar expressions with many colourful new ones including 'con charge', 'bling-bling', 'kipper' and 'snoutcast', he takes a humorous, non-academic (and full frontal!) approach to the origins and meanings of this language of the street, the bar and the underworld, a phenomenon that has permeated all aspects of our language from dotcoms to school playgrounds.
