Cockney Rhyming Slang

from the Wiki: Rhyming slang is a form of phrase construction in the English language and is especially prevalent in dialectal English from the East End of London; hence the alternative name, Cockney rhyming slang (or CRS).

The construction involves replacing a common word with a rhyming phrase of two or three words and then, in almost all cases, omitting the secondary rhyming word, in a process called hemiteleia, making the origin and meaning of the phrase elusive to listeners not in the know.

The most frequently cited example—although it is almost never employed by current users — involves the replacement of "stairs" with the rhyming phrase "apples and pears". Following the usual pattern of omission, "(and) pears" is then dropped and "stairs" becomes "apples". Thus the spoken phrase "I'm going up the apples" means "I'm going up the stairs".

clear as mud? let professor Fry elucidate


it's #fryday  where I am! :D

SUPERMOON!
 
Super moon this weekend - Can't wait

The moon will officially become full Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT. And because this month's full moon coincides with the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth — it will also be the year's biggest.

The moon will swing in 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, offering skywatchers a spectacular view of an extra-big, extra-bright moon, nicknamed a supermoon.

A blog post that tells a story is more than "just" a blog post.

I would add coffee iced cubes to this to be used in iced coffee so it doesn't water down
You've taken care to create a perfect cocktail, so why dull it down with a boring icecube? Read on for 5 cures to the common ice cube.
