3 Cheeky

This has been used so much in my family, and naturally I say it as well.

And the way we use cheeky, it isn't really an insult. More of a light hearted dig. - RaineSage

Same thing, although it means sneaky or little bit rude in our family. - PizzaGuy

If someone said this to me I wouldn't be offended. These insults are lame. I know they're British, but seriously? Cheeky? Is that saying that their cheks look big? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Gormless

I'm English and I use it to call someone a bit slow and divvy

Meaning: "Calling someone a slacker." - MontyPython

7 Grotty

First entered the American vernacular via George Harrison in the movie Hard Day's Night, when he muttered "I think they're Grotty", when referring to some supposedly fashionable shirts somebody asked him about.
Shortly after that it was picked up and used by the California surfer sub-culture, gradually working its way into US fame by Moon Zappa's hilarious Valley Girl song in 1982.

Short for "grotesque", and later co-opted from the colloquial Val-Speak by Moon Unit Zappa in the famous 1980's song "Valley Girls", but mis-spelled by the media as "Grody- to the max! "

To the illiterate who posted the comment before mine. It is 'of course', not 'off course'. Also, punctuation isn't hard. Your computer/phone/tablet will do all the work for you.

Off course this is the best watch any of Lhugueny videos that have captain price in them
