I just don't think anything beats cretin as a non-sweary insult. 

It's up there, and weirdly I probably use it more than imbecile. I think I like to save that for special occasions

I avoid words like that as they are used to insult folk with learning disabilities. For me it is in the same group as spaz.

I was showing some people around at my work the other day who happened to be from Glastonbury town and one of them had a friend who crawled through an underground tunnel this year after being tipped off regarding the co-ordinates! I was quite shocked as thought that it must go on for quite a while to have to go past all the fences and he said that with the rain in the days before it was a bit touch and go as to whether the tunnel would still be in one piece!!! :o:ph34r:

Think not. Think somebody might notice the exit within the fence. Unless of course they mean the rabbit hole. In which case they were already in and had no need to 'tunnel' .?

Didn't know that. Always thought that's a safe one to use. In my mind it was a spindly witch like creature. I shall try to never use that again after reading the meaning. Cheers for educating. ?

Huh. Who knew?

Apart from you obviously. Fair enough.

I didn't, but then, given general usage isn't the first definition the one most people would think of these days?

Kids have some of the worse insults. I remember as a kid watching Blue Peter and they did a piece on a bloke with learning difficulties called Joey Deacon. Within days the playground was awash with the sound of '"You're a Joey'. It's not pc but does raise a smile.

Melt is a nice go to word to be title less abrasive  when trying to mildly offend someone.

Melt or Whopper. 

Beaute as well.

There's two very different sentiments there though. The first one - romanticism for how things were in the past - is almost always accompanied by an acknowledgement that things had to change.

The second one - somehow being the true spirit of the festival - I've only ever heard from obvious trolls. It's not a common thing at all.

I don't think the contradiction you're describing really exists in any significant numbers.

I think it's true that as few of us have got a bit glassy eyed about getting in for free in the old days, but still find the guy claiming he does it all the time to be a bit of a pillock. Admittedly, there's a bit of cognitive dissonance there, but it's not quite the same thing - acceptable in the 90s and all that.

Besides, he's lying.

Was about to reply to your first post. Glad I read down.

Was going to say (am saying it anyway) a couple of years ago someone used the phrase "You fuckin' Joey",  near me and it was honestly the first time had heard that particular insult for about a quarter of a century.

Surprisingly insulting. Originates (I believe) from the rhyming slang Berkshire Hunt...

Isn't Berkshire pronounced Barkshire? In which case it should be bark not berk.

Weapon is a good one, so is Spanner.

Agreed with Beaut and Whopper too.

I was introduced to 'spanner' a fair few years ago, and I like it - a lot. However, I must submit to believing that 'weapon' is much more fruity.

Anyway, that's all I've got to say (so far) on this, you conglomerate of weigh anchors! 

Soz - you know that I didn't really mean that. I'll do anything for affect and effect, like the slag I am.

I was spun in on the Friday, we got there in the Wednesday though and our original way in had fallen through. I'm not going to give too many details about it but if you have the money there's always a way in
