I just learned a new British insult

Well, I think it is. It was said by a guy from London:

"Fucking tosspot"

I have 2 questions. Is this a common insult in the UK? If so, what the hell is a tosspot?

Is it a receptacle for ejaculate?

Alistair! said...

it is synonimous with "wanker", though tosspot has been around for sometinme ( it's in a couple of Shakespeares plays) the etymology has changed over time as a 'tosspot' was the pot rom which you tossed your nightly *ahem* evacuations. Then for some reason 'toss' became a synonym for ejaculate. You can call someone a 'tosser' or also tell them to 'toss-off' a more 'polite' form of 'fuck-off'. So to call someone a "fuckin' tosser" is the same as saying "fuckin' wanker". I'm a Brit form London so if you wish to know more...

I just love some of the terminology they use. I love the word "knackered"!

Thank you Alistair. I knew I was on the right track, but I've learned much this evening. Thank you for bringing me out of the dark of my ignorance into the light.

I think you misunderstood his English accent.

What he probably said was, "wanker."

Do you have the pope in your ears?

Oh. I didn't read what Alistair said.

He might have said Tossspot.

Or he could have said Radio Free Europe.

you're all motherfucking tosspots.

expecially that guy with coal for a face.

Lex said...

A tosspot is like saying you jack off. Or just like what Alistar said above.

I personally love saying both to people.

Who is this Fred? And why is he here? Did his mother expel him from her home because of his ugliness? Inquiring minds want to know!
