Ratbag is a favourite at home.  Once, when we were out with the children, young Master Therapy proudly announced to everyone in earshot, "We're a pair of little Ratbags".

Plum and lemon are used a lot as general terms of derision.  "Daddy, you plum" is often heard at Chez Therapy.  Fiddlesticks! and For Five Minutes! are pretty good for letting off steam.

BTW, Berk, is a shortened rhyming slang - remember that discussion? - for Berkshire Hunt. I'm sure you can work out that one. An example of mutated rhyming slang is Aris, short for Aristotle, rhyming slang for bottle, shortened from Bottle and Glass (pronounced in the London way "Glarse"), rhyming slang for arse.  

According to my dictionary, rhyming slang was also used in Australia and New Zealand but is now obsolete.  Dunno if that's true but the few Aussies I've spoken to have never heard of it.

 

So this would be like Ebonics is here in the colonies?

I doubt it, based on my limited knowledge of Ebonics.  Rhyming slang has been around here for so long it's largely seen as being part of the language, regardless of class, ethnicity or location.  Used more widely in certain parts of the country but understood all over, at least by people who speak English as a first language, and many others who have lived here long enough to use slang.

Forum Entropy, mate.  We have to keep up our noise level to drown it out and/or set an example to the new members.
