Utter Pish

The A to Z Blog Challenge brings us the 21st letter of the alphabet.  The Letter U.  My Motto versus Insults theme continues...one week left, Plonkers!

Today's Motto


Firstly, I have a Scottish accent and I live in South Africa, so that makes me unique right off the bat.  I talk differenty to everyone else here.  Secondly, I am a red head, which has made me stand out like a beacon since I can remember.  And Lastly, I am 5 foot nothing, so most people think I'm a fucking midget when they meet me for the first time .  Going to concerts is a bitch! 

I talk loud, I laugh loud and in general I'm no skrinking violet, so people either love me, or they hate me. Either way, they remember me becaue I'm unique.  Thank Fuck!

Today's Insult is a Scottish one

Utter Pish

This is a popular phrase used in Scotland. 

It's one of my favourites. 

It can be used as an adjective, meaning inadequate, displeasing, or of poor quality. 

For example : I'm not drinking that, it's utter pish. 

It can also be used as a verb, as a variation of piss. 

For Example "Am awa' fur a pish".

Tuesday means its Caption My Daft Photo Competition also, so here is today's image to caption.  Be sure to be creative and you could win one of my Daft Scots Lass tattoos! 

WhoofrikkenHoo, Plonkers!

Ready?  Have Fun!

Here, it's about bloody time the Irish follow the Scots, so here I is.

Cheers for the well thought out comment the other day... it cracked me up :)

PS... did Scotland make the Euro '12 cup?

That guy fell down and pished himself. He is just waiting for it to dry so no one will see the wet spot.

I never imagined you as a really short woman for some reason Lass haha, you certainly are unique compared to most other people in South Africa but unique is always a good thing. Pish is such a great word as well, even though it's a Scottish one we do tend to use it around here occasionally.

Mark said...

I can't wait to use "Utter Pish" today. I'm sure no one around me will get it but at the very least, I can pretend I'm a little smarter than they are. ha!

Leah said...

I have loads of Scottish friends who all use the word Pish. As a result, it's crept into my vocabulary over the years, but the way I say it isn't anywhere near as funny as the lassies from Glasgie!

Copyboy said...

I'm a fan of this scottish insult segment. Can't wait to use it-ish.

Ahh, one more week until we can get past all these Good Mottos and get back to just insults. Getting to homey up in here.

Slyde said...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Utter pish! I'm going to start using that tomorrow.
My wife is short as well. Last time we went to a concert with stadium seating, two dudes almost seven feet tall stood in front of her. (She did say it was the best concert she'd ever heard though.)

Sonia Lal said...

I love the utter pish! Never heard it before.

Also, I wish I had red hair.

Curmudgeon said...

I'm different because the all the hair on the right side of my body is white. I have to dye my beard.

"I lost the bet but my dick's too short."

I'm not drunk, I'm resting my ability to make sound decisions.'

Oh. God I got slipped a roofie and wake up here in men's clothes...again.

Curmudgeon said...

Damn I thought you were at least 5'8"
I guess it depends on which convenience store you are leaving.
