    The new accountant is a panesar, good with numbers but sometimes pisses on the security guard.

    Panesar should never mean anything other than pissing everywhere.

    Panesar, noun

    How's the new dog settling in?

    Yeah I'm chuffed. Had some Panesar's earlier in the week, but now we've got him going in the garden

    Have changed my version of Panesar to be Tufnell, so to avoid conflict with this superior definition. Gotta admit I'd forgotten about that incident.

    The question is, is a panesar any old piss, or should it require an element of malicious intent?

    warner, verb

    To involuntarily respond with extreme violence to innocuous slights, real or imagined.

    'She ate my stash of Tim Tams so I punched her lights out. In my defense, your Honour, I did warner.'

    lehmann, noun

    An unexpected display of racism that clouds a distinguished career.

    'Mel Gibson, great actor, fine director...but I can't get past that lehmann live on air.'

    'When life gives you lehmanns, blame political correctness.'

    north, noun

    Something much maligned at the time, but looked back on with wistful feelings when faced with tougher times.

    The rise of Donald Trump led the liberal elites to view George W Bush as a prime example of a North.

    marsh, noun

    Something that you see has some purpose, but you're kind of convinced it's only got where it has due to some kind of lie and/or nepotism

    Well, I know that Andy Townsend played football, but I'm pretty sure his presence as a pundit and commentator can only be due to him being some kind of marsh.

    southee, noun

    Someone very serviceable, nay even incredibly useful at times, but also as thick as mince

    "I did enjoy watching the Goonies the other day but I had the dawning realisation that the character Sloth is a real southee.

    See also Broad, Stuart

    athlai, verb

    To be incredibly untrustworthy.

    "This evil bastard spent days trying to convince me he was actually a horse. There he was, eating hay and shitting in my living room and demanding apples and sugarcubes. More fool me, it turned out he was athlaing the whole time"

    Black Cap, verb - to be appreciated for your sense of commitment and fair play, but to not get any reward for effort.

    "Harry thought he was well loved at work by management and staff alike, but realised when he was passed over for the promotion that he had been well and truly Black Capped".

    Athers can no doubt fill you in himself. It's definitely lighthearted though, not calling him a lying malicious bastard.

    But the lying part... well, he's so damn convincing.

    ~

    bucknor, noun

    A bad decision with no discernible logic behind it.

    "The ice cream seller went bankrupt after he made the bucknor to go on extended summer holiday but make up for it by trading in the winter instead."


    In fairness to Steve, you can use the names of many other umpires as synonyms for this one.

    bell, noun

    Something that by all objective accounts works reasonably well and in any case much better than the alternatives but must be ruthlessly criticized for perceived flaws

    You really should buy a new car, that one you've got is a real bell. It doesn't even have WiFi installed!

    anderson, verb

    To show disrespect to someone who deserves praise.

    My teacher was horrible – even though I’d improved my grades, he andersoned about me at parents’ evening because they still weren’t all A’s”
