Pigs Ear & More Tea Vicar

Posted by Carl Williams on November 20, 2000

I notice on the list of meanings that Pigs Ear is Cockney Ryhming Slang for Beer. Am I right in saying that if you make a mess of something you make a bit of a 'pigs ear' of it. I'm not sure how Beer fits in with that?

Does Anyone know where the expression 'more tea vicar' comes from?

Thanks, Carl
