Competitors can attempt, from outside their trousers, to dislodge the ferrets, but as the animals can maintain a strong hold for long periods, their removal can be difficult

That was a great scene from "Airplane". The White lady who was fluent in "jive" is the same actress who 20 years earlier played June Cleaver in "Leave it to Beaver".

Does anyone in the UK still actually use Cockney Rhyming Slang, or is it just a novelty?

watching a documentary about the rock group Queen, freddie mercury can be heard saying "berk" which is an obscene example of cockney rhyming slang, it is shorthand for "berkeley hunt" and is an obvious rhyme to a vulgar word for a body part used to describe a disliked person.
