A question of wankery

Postby Arroin » Fri Oct 16, 2009 6:42 pm

Saw several mentions of the Wanker Rules in HotB and I'm curious.

What does "wanker" mean?

Is there a simple definition? I'm hoping someone could just toss one out.

What exactly is a wanker? How do I spot one?

If there's one at my table, is it good form to pull him off?

You've been in the US far too long - a wanker is a jerk, an ass, or a general trouble maker. It's British slang. :)

:shock:

To wank = to masterbate - with this in mind the above quote shocks me!

Also uses as a derogitory term - as in calling someone a wanker or something being a pile of wank,

I don't wear leeks. I do wear a daffodil on St David's day. Just don't ask me what I wear under the cilt.

BTW, not a typo, or double entendre. Cilt is the welsh spelling of the more commonly known word, kilt.
