A Conversation for Cockney Rhyming Slang

Drug refernces

Post 1


One still used by every Londoner

Jimmy - Jimmy Boyle - Foil
as in tin foil for the purpose of smoking heroin
As in "pass the jimmy"

(Also bubble bath - laugh - was always used at one remove in my day.
i.e "You've got no jimmy? You're having a radox")

Jacks - Jack and Jills - Pills - ectasy in the '90s

Managed to get a few anglophone french mates to refer to Es as Chiracs in Paris in the 1990s (as opposed to Taz, the verlon - french backslang - for exta) This was bilngual cockney rhyming slang at one remove

"Donne-moi un Chirac, mec/meuf"

Couldn't make it catch on, unfortunately
