Online Site Creates "Popney" Slang

from the excuse-me-while-I-throw-up dept

I have to post this one simply for the amusement factor. Apparently, some online site has created a new “slang” system related to Cockney, where they use rhyming music stars names in the sentences. Examples quoted in the article: “I’m going to George Michael (cycle) down to the Fat Boy Slim (Gym)”, or “Do you fancy a Britney Spears (a few beers)”. I think if I hear anyone use any of these, I may have to resort to a violent response.
