This ATM's having a bubble - East End cash machines go Cockney

A cash machine operator has introduced Cockney rhyming slang prompts and options to five of its ATMs in east London.
Customers choosing the cockney option will be asked to enter their Huckleberry Flynn (PIN) and will then be able to select sausage and mash (cash) amounts such as a speckled hen (£10).
The Bank Machine ATMs will then advise that they are contacting the user's rattle and tank (bank) for approval.
Ron Delnevo, MD, Bank Machine, says: "Whilst we expect some residents will visit the machine to just have a butchers (look), most will be genuinely pleased as this is the first time a financial services provider will have recognised the cockney language in such a manner."
The option will be available - alongside plain English - for three months from today.
