I like Fustylugs best , ' a woman of gross or corpulent habit ' .

I still remember someone calling me a twerp about twenty years ago, and laughing because couldn't remember when I'd last heard it before that.

Back in the early 70s in Essex we used to ask people 'are you a benny tied up' (benny being slang for homosexual)? If they said no we used to shout 'benny tied up, benny tied up'. A bit childish but hey, we were children :D

Funnily enough I was watching Terry Thomas in some film the other day , he was playing tennis against Ian Carmichael and kept saying ' Hard Cheese ' every time Carmichael fluffed his shot - so , yeah , I was heavily influenced by old Terry there . :)

That used to be the nickname troops gave Falkland islanders shortly after the war down there, only it was based on Benny, the hard of thinking character in Crossroads (youngster my want to use Google at this point).
Eventually the locals discovered the source of the nickname and took umbrage to it, this then lead to senior officers down there banning it's use by the soldiers.
So the locals then became known as stills. One officer overhearing troops mentioning stills asked what they was on about, the reply was, "well sir, they're still Benny's".......

Wasn't it that if you asked them "Are you a Benny tied up?" and they said "No", you'd then point at them and shout "Benny on the loose!"?

About a week or so after his funeral, someone got a sum or whatever wrong in class. I reckon I must have been 12 or 13.

Some bright spark piped up with Who said Joey was dead? and even the teacher laughed!
