You’re Having A Turkish

Part of me finds the cockney rhyming slang cash machine a perfectly intriguing and fun idea. I can’t say I would pay £1.50 commission to use one, especially as the photo below seems to give away most of the gags. But since when have PIN number or screen had a rhyming slang. And as suck the Huckleberry Finn and Charlie Sheen seem to fluff the whole point of rhyming slang is not to provide the word that rhymes.

Now if they were to add a GAMBLE button to a cash machine…

    What an atrocity. STOP GETTING COCKNEY WRONG.

    Of course if a machine did actually dispense sausage and mash, that would be kind of awesome.

    re 2 I’d fight Reg Varney for first place at that ATM – would be good too if it translated your balance –
    ‘You have 68 sausages and 34 scoops of mash left in your account.’
