i'm putting the "Tol E" sign outside of my room. We'll see how many numpties ask what *that* means...

See? I'm cultivating my elderly grouchiness already.

Potter speak for 'idiots'



Apr 3, 2007 - Scotland's favourite word, according to a poll by BT Openreach, is numpty. Derived from "numps", an obsolete word for a stupid person

Thank you for the explanation! I had no idea. It's a very enjoyable word to look at and to say. :)

i agree. And oh so much nicer than say "you're an idiot" to an American's face (a Scotsman, of course, may be a numpty of a different color entirely)
