2 Git

Oops, thanks for the clarification!

Hence John Lennon's line in the Beatle song The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill "...and I curse sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid Git."

I'm going to boo you lists too. Boo. - KoolGuy2218

Go ahead, even though there's no reason. This list isn't about stupid opinions and hate, it's actually about a different topic, genius. - MontyPython

Meaning: "Calling someone a 'sod' or a 'moron'." - MontyPython

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

Meaning: "Someone is acting very rude." - MontyPython

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

4 Duffer

In the US, this usually means a person who is bad at the game of golf.

Meaning: "Calling someone slow or stupid." - MontyPython

5 Divvy

This is USA slang for "divide", as in "We are going to divvy up the Halloween candy we collected".

Meaning: "Calling someone an idiot." - MontyPython

Haha! So very british! - gemcloben

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.

Meaning: "Calling someone disgusting." - MontyPython

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! "

8 Nutter

Meaning: "Calling someone insane." - MontyPython

I use this sometimes. - PizzaGuy

9 Munter

Meaning: "Calling someone unattractive." - MontyPython

10 Nosey Parker

Meaning: "Telling someone they're getting into people's business and they're really annoying." - MontyPython

This one is always popping up in old books. - PetSounds

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

14 Homer Simpson

Homer simpson suckle on my nipples please ooh yes

That British insult reminds me of a Simpson episode (the older ones) that the Simpson family (including Abe) had travelled to England for a holiday, and Homer got into trouble for bad manners towards the Quern of England. LOL! 😂

15 Clangers

Um, Topaz, you don't need to know... - TwilightKitsune

Whar does this mean? As far as I know, in American English it means that something makes noise. How this is an insult is weird. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Whenever this stupid show is on Cbeebies, I obviously watch CBBC.
