Some commentators have tried to find tortured rhymes for the extended slang form « Wotcher Cock » – « What`s your watch? », « Take care of your back », etc. In fact, « Wotcher » has long been older than CRS and is a contraction of the previous greeting phrase « What cheer? » In this form, it became part of the everyday English language in the early Middle Ages. The MSN Encarta dictionary and freedictionary.com support Martha`s second theory, that Wotcher is a contraction of « what jubilation. » It is a slang (UK) that means the same thing as hello.
