Cockney Rhyming Slang - An Egon

This is another of those rhyming slang expressions that I've only seen written down, but I found this one too amusing to pass up (if you pardon the expression!).

An Egon is short for an Egon Ronay, the famous food critic and guide book author.

Also used for Egon in rhyming slang is macaroni and baloney, amongst others.

So here we go

Egon (Ronay) = pony (and trap) = crap. This can be used to describe something as not being good or the act or product of you know...

So there we have it, an interesting blog entry or just a load of old egon?

Egon Ronay, all that food tasting makes a lot of Egon
