For those who may be interested, there is a particularly amusing expression which has been popular in the UK in recent times 'Donkey's Knob'.

I was told by one cockney (who uses rhyming slang all the time) that it means "Donkey's Knob - Just the Job". In other words "perfect".

Cockneys have a habit of shortening the expression to the s1ngle word "Donkey's".

"Hello Bert! How's the car now that's it's got a new engine?"

"Donkey's" - I should have had it fixed ages ago!"
