tumshie
 n.— «While doing my weekly shopping in our local supermarket, I was choosing a turnip and was appalled at the price of one—70-90p depending on size and they were tiny!…You’d be a right “tumshie” to pay that much for a neep!» —“The Voice Of Scotland” by Charles Duncan Scottish Daily Record (Scotland) May 22, 1996.
