I recently caught myself calling myself a "twazzock" and thought I might have invented a new word. To me it's a friendly form of abuse,
"you twazzock.,. george" I'll say if I drop a shoe in the washing up, or whatever. I searched for it on the web and found three references, so i didn't invent it, I found it somewhere. It's not sexist or religous like 99% of swearwords, at least not obviously so. Where does it come from?
Could it be that it's onomatepoaeic (meaning 'sounds like what it is', like 'quack')?
this here could become a webpage about twazzocks, my contribution to 21st century culture, language, and society, a friendlier swearword, twazzock. what do you think?
