    ATM Machines as supplied by your local "Merchant Banker", I suppose.

    So,

    If the bees an' 'unny ain't coming out of the bangers 'n mash machine it's down to the all time loser (or rub a dub) for a pig's ear or two, sat at a Cain and Abel and then ask for a few deep sea divers/Lady Godivers as cash back, (or a monkey, but beware of the Sweeney).

    We need an icon saying: "translate that into English [American]"

    I think you meant "berkshire", which is amusing when it's OK to call someone a berk

    The oiks probably won't bother translating, they'll just shout louder BECAUSE THAT MAKES THEM UNDERSTOOD IN ANY LANGUAGE, RIGHT ?!

    Why the hell would you do this?

    I know it's only a few nore lines of code but why? I know some Cockneys and they seem to understand the words their slang replaces.

    I'm all for fun, and this would be fun for someone like google to do (I'v not checked) but using it on a cash machine is like putting a comedy face on your safe dial -- annoying and pointless, unless the safe is impenetrable. Spend your time on making them work and getting rid of bugs, you stupid twats!

    Actually it's Berkeley, after Berkeley Hunt, based in the Cotswolds. Nothing to do with Berkshire.

    No thanks

    If I ever feel the need to be patronised by a machine I can always try National Rail Enquiries.

    Nuff said - knock it on the 'ead.

    Er, are you really so dim as to be unable to see why someone would do this?

    Hint 1: have you ever previously heard of a company called Bank Machine?

    Hint 2: How much do you think they'd normally have to pay for publicity/advertising like this?

    Top hole. Bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how's your father. Hairy blighter, dicky-birdied, feathered back on his Sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harper's and caught his can in the Bertie.

    Now, everyone knows...

    Superb, and in my opinion, Kudos to them! Found a use for one of those unused buttons on the damn things, I presume? Sadly, only 3 months to get my sausage from the rattle.

    Um... "Cockney?"

    I'd be extrememly surprised if you could hear the sound of Bow Bells from anywhere in Walthamstow. Unless it was recorded.

    Um... "Cockney?"

    Well, being born in 1956's Chelsea, more famous nowadays for its 4x4 only-on-road tractors than its flower show, I can guess that with a good omnidirectional microphone (loose IT angle, I grant ya) one could make out St-Mary-le-Bow's Bell from a long way away.

    Like comparing Oranges and Lemons, I guess. (but, Bow has no guest appearance in the song. Pity)

    Typical, the machines had been working for years. As soon as they turn cockney, they wont work a day in their life
