: : Have just read "Dance on my Grave" by Aidan Chambers, which contains quite a bit of Cockney rhyming slang. Cannot find the meaning for two of them. From the context they are probably sexual!! "Plate of ham" and "Ten-to-two". Any ideas?
: It would help if you gave us the sentence in which they appear.
Plate of ham refers to oral sex (from "gam", meaning mouth) I think "ten to two" = Jew
