Wotcher, Cock



The time has come for me to explain to those that might not understand that a cockney saying "Wotcher, Cock" is not being rude. Instead it is a term of affection, a shortening of Cock Sparrow (or, sparrer to the locals) often used as a term of endearment representing a chirpy, irrepressible soul. So now you know.

I found this behind Devonshire Square, thinking it was in Cock Lane, but now I'm not so sure.
