Subtitling Cockney Can't Post

I found a reasonably good English subtitle file for the DVD-screener, which still needed lots of corrections, as it was obviously done by someone who doesn't know Prof. Tolkien's works very well. (Bagg End, Throwmorton, Saville-Baggins, to name but a few of the more eye-hurting mistakes). Also, his understanding of Cockney made me deduce he was not a Brit. I had to correct almost the entire Troll-sequence, which was rather fun really.. I tried to make it as Cockney as I could, with lots of dropped h's and so on. Now there is only one word i'm not sure of. After Bert comments on the ungratefullness of his comrades, one of them says: Ooh. That is beautifully balanced, that is, wrap yer ........ around that, 'ey! Now the word I left out sounds like 'loganbie', but I cannot find that word, or one that sounds alike, anywhere. Does anybody know the right word he says?
