London's East End Rhyming Slang Expressions are on the way out. A survey of 2000 adults revealed that up to 80 percent of Londoners did not understand the slang.  Nevertheless, Londoners still enjoy coining new phrases by rhyming words.

Thought you might like these to work out.

On yer Loaf of Bread, you've got your Barnet Fair (or maybe a Syrup of Figs). On yer Boat Race, you have yer Mince Pies, King Lears and I Suppose. In yer North and South you've got yer Hampstead Heath. Yer Loaf sits on yer Gregory Peck, which sits on yer Noddy Holder. If you're a woman you might have Bristol Cities (or Thrupenny Bits) on yer Bristol and West.

We've all got a pair of Chalk Farms poking out with a pair of German Bands at the end. In yer Derby Kelly lives yer Newington Butts. Don't eat too much in case yer Fish and Chips start expanding.
