    Scouse (Liverpudlian) term - An untrustworthy person, possibly a petty crook, one poorly educated and with poor taste. Generally, but not necessarily a major insult, it can also be a term of endearment...well, sort of. See also Chav.

    A socially awkward idiot, who is unaware of being one, typically believing otherwise.
