It represents a certain je-ne-se-quois-but-it-sure-smells-bad that no other single word can.

I kinda like the face of the cat - it doen't look too happy


I could be wrong, but I think the cat is thinking "wanker".


Useful term. I'm all in favor of popularizing its use in the US.


Very useful indeed.

Agreed. Started popularization campaign by calling my brother one on the phone. I feel good about this effort.

Hmmm....cultural debate ensues...

Technically speaking, folks, wouldn't the appropriate (or inappropriate, as the case may be) limey-ism here "prat"?

Obviously, a wanker is one who, well, wanks. Let's move on without further descriptors. IIRC, isn't a 'prat' more of a descriptor for an annoyingly immature person? Least that's what my Kiwi interpreter told me / called me once upon a time.

Anyways, wouldn't 'prat' be more appropo in this picture?

I'd love a decent remake of Highlander with good acting. Always liked the story.


I'd love to see every single Hollywood type who announces a remake of an old film flayed alive slowly.

That said, Highlander doesn't lend itself to good acting. It's like Star Wars; not a very deep story, and it has to be over-acted to hit the right notes.

I'm reminded of Harrison Ford's comment to George Lucas on the set of Episode IV: "George, you can write this <expletive deleted>, but you can't act it!"

Summons proper Ray Harryhausen-animated skeleton warriors to hunt down and kill all movie remakers.

valkyries from The Golden Voyage of Sinbad were better than those skellies from Jason and the argonauts.

Technically....you could say that about all fantasy.
