Hampton Wick

n
British
the penis. Hampton Wick is a southwest-ern suburb of London, providing a rhyme for prick. In modern usage the short form of the phrase is usually preferred. Since the mid-1970s the term has been con-sidered well established and inoffensive enough to be used in television come-dies.
► 'Then there were these telephone calls from...groupies. Somehow they'd learned a hell of a lot of cockney slang. They'd phone up and say "Hi Jeff Beck, how's your Ampton Wick?" Ridiculous!' (Jimmy Page, Oz magazine, April 1969)
