London Cash Machine Has Cockney Language Option

At one cash machine in East London, you'll have to know a bit of cockney to get money for your pocket, or "moolah for ya sky rocket." The cockney dialect employs rhyming slang, which changes a common word into a rhyming phrase. When customers choose the cockney option at the machine, it asks for their "Huckleberry Finn" — or PIN.
