"I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand
Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain
He was looking for a place called Lee Ho Fook's
Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein

Ahhwooo, werewolves of London
Ahhwooo, werewolves of London"

Werewolves of London - Warren Zevon

Cheeky Chappie 1: 'Owite mate it's a werewolf innit. Doin' the Laambef  Walk darn old Laarndon Tawhn. '

Cheeky Chappie 2: 'Hang a trout , Hang a trout! How is this Laarndan?  There aint no Black Cabs,  Red Buses or even Red Postbox's. And what abaaht a gratuitous shot of St. Stephens Tower? (Thats Big Ben To those what 'ave no claas).

Cheeky Chappie 1: 'Nah mate you can tell it's Laarndon 'cos of all the Cockney Rhymin' Slang thats in the pitchur init'

Cheeky Chappie2: 'Ah I sees it. Cor Guv this is an even worse pun than aaall this ere pretend Cockerny we is talkin''

Cheeky Chappie 1: 'That's right and Big  Dave sez that if you can see them all then there might be a prize. Although I wouldn't trust Big Dave as far as I could frow 'im. And he also sez that If you can see the rude one not to tell but just EElude to it 'cos it's rude see and Big Tom wouldn't like that innit...'

Cheeky Chappie2: 'Right Guv I'll start everyone off by givin 'em a free un. See that pub sign? Well that's The old 'Whistle and Flute' That's Rhyming Slang For Suit. Whistle & Flute  - Suit.'

Cheeky Chappie 1: 'Can't say fairer than that. There's a few in there. So away yer go'

Funny concept, and clever puns, I’m sure, but I am afraid we hear little ****ney slang here in Sunny old Arizona. In fact we are amongst the ones Professor Higgins spoke when he said, referring to the English language" In America they haven’t spoken it in years!". I am a big Warren Zevon fan, though. Sad to hear of his passing. I never quite understood the song either, but liked it. Is London still infested with Lycanthropes? Dang, we only have U.F.O.s and Chupacabras here.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "This is the reason I don’t live in London. Too many werewolves!

We seem to have had a rash of UFO’s in England though by the looks of them in the papers and TV they seem to suspiciously float along like those Chinese lanterns that fly about."

Drat and horsefeathers! It censored my London-slang Dialect word! Did that once to my wife when she told someone we used to raise pea****s! Then someone else said they censored her dog breed, a ****er Spaniel! Suppose ****atoos and ****-a-poos would be censored too.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Yep I cant think why they would censor the work ****. It’s a perfectly normal word. Like the ball **** in the cistern at the back of the loo. Now you have to call it a flotation valve. And a snowman becomes a snow person. And don’t ever walk into a cellar without the light on and say ’It’s pitch black in here’ when the correct term now id ’Pitch dark’....

It’s political Correctness gone Maaaaaaaaaaad!"

Hi Dave, (it has been a while) I get a kick out of this fellow! 7 could he any cooler! (I think not)

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "No he’s the coolest werewolf in town 12"

That’s a nice one! I love the scenery. I wish I knew more rhyming slang, but a deficiency in that department sorta comes with being born and bred in Denmark: I only come across the stuff when I read. Anyhow: apples and pears = stairs, Jack jones = alone, ruby murray = curry. Now what did I forget? You already mentioned the whistle and flute one.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "You got 3! There are plenty more in there. I really must post a larger version since a couple of them are a little lost in the jpeg mush... Denmark... I can hear the bacon sizzling as we speak 12 (You make bacon in Denmark I know that ’cos the adverts say so)"

Cool, a Lycan in the open, *Gets smacked by Death Dealer*. Soorrry about that. When I first saw that picture I though of the werewolves of London song. Good ’un, *Cringes from threatened blow*. That looks fly!

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Just a little twist on the the theme. I’ve seen many versions all with Big Ben and a Red Bus in the frame just in case you didn’t get it LOL.
But only a few have taken my challenge."

Experimenting. A comenter in another gallery seemrd to beat the censor bu putting half the word in another color, as "The Lady of the Pea****s." See if it works here. If it does, Ill be able to say ****ney even if I can’t spot the slang references. East Enders was on our local PBS TV a few yrs ago, but Sorry to say I don’t remember the slanguage. .......Well that’sone failed mad experiment.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Please do not judge all of Britain by the old Eastenders. Anyway it’s not as funny as it once was with Arthur Fowler .
This experiment seems to have gone awry. But wait I see more...."

Cancel, not working - see below.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "I can hardly wait 10"

One more try - I think I’ve got it.
ocks are such gorgeous creatures.
If so, can use Cockney after all.
....Halleluia - got it - jus color all but one letter of the censorable word. Wheee. Thanks to the Purple Dragoness.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Wahey! Someone will always work their way around a censor 12
Now all I need to do is re-submit this picture so all the details can be seen. Maybe next year 12

Oh have a Goosey Gander at my Other Works. There is a fine example of a Pea****"
