The "w" word is rather popular in my neck of the woods. Here's a pleasant little ditty which uses it extensively:

The song is, as they say, "not safe for work", and not for children either.

"Tosser" was used frequently on a Britsh forum I once belonged to, and that was a puzzler, though I usually could figure it out from context. I think it means the same as "jerk" does over here.

Even better, no "w" word but hugely funny:

More or less.

Tosser and Wanker are both euphemisms for masturbation. jerk was too.

I was once called a 'soft southern Jessie' by a northerner when I complained about cutting my face open on brambles whilst trail riding in Yorkshire, which to me is on a par with 'big girl's blouse'. I was riding with my head tilted sideways to stop the blood running into my goggles and had to stop for a quick wipe.

oh yes.you know her well.

Rosie Palmer?


or the variation:

did you hook up last night?

oh yeah-two on one.


Rosie Palmer and her twin sister Lefty.

But perhaps, on a scale of one to ten, not quite as bad as calling someone "a total waste of space."

Hi gut
is that where the meaning of jerk came from too? calling someone a jerk here in the US is so common and been around so long I had no idea. didn't actually even think of it till now.
