Except It would be down the battle cruiser for a King Lear.

IMHO good rhyming slang has to lose the "cruiser" on the way.

Hadn't realised that trump for fart was regional: I'll have a butcher's. (And the best has to be unrecognised as such. As in the relevant raspberry.)

Derivation of trump is onomatopoeic, either directly or through trumpet. I had a faint hope that the -pet in trumpet might be a second fart, as in the accomplished M Pujol, but it looks as if it's just "little". But the etymology of pet and fart is wonderful... and the same.

PS: Isn't it great to have a Donald Trump and a Donald Tusk in public life at the same time? :-)

Of course you could've popped to the nuclear for an Aristotle of king, kept your mincers on the Liza for an hour or two and kept out of the troubles Barnet.

If you didn't fancy what the trouble was cooking you could have some Frank whilst there.

Personally I would rather go trolling for a Dolly Basket

You'll be a fan of double rhyming slang then Jonathan - as in 'Shift yer 'Arris'.  Smile

For the uninitiate, Arris = Aristole = bottle and glass = arse.  Which brings us nicely back to Trump.

Agree about the usage, but is that really the derivation? It sounds too good to be true.

Had a quick browse, but should have the spent the time searching for my favourite dead-tree version. It did come up with "Pain in the April" which would be the rarely spotted triple. And I've never heard it.

Your bid. :-)

Yup - "Up your 'arris" = cheers (Mort is bang on the money Aristotle = Bottle, Bottle and glass = arse.)

April is a new one on me Jonathan.  It's modern day, apparently.

Time for me to Botany.
