Default cockney rhyming slang

Is there anything similar to cockney rhyming slang in Spain? If there is any chance of some examples.

It's still alive and well -- I've heard my ex-boyfriend (Mexican-American) say things like "Entiendes, Mendez?" and "Qué pasa, masa?"

It's not too far from "Later, alligator" and "After a while, crocodile". Of course it doesn't actually substitute words like Cockney rhyming slang.

A few years ago my spanish step daughter was living with me in England for almost a year. We used a lot of cockney rhyming slang and I'm certain it greatly increased her english vocabulario and pronunciation. And it was great fun. But sadly that won't help any of us improve our spanish

It sounds as though you had a lot of fun with your dustbin SrCandas.
