twazzock
 n.— «All he can do is invite us to examine our responses to two statements: “Your son-in-law needs a loan,” versus “Your daughter’s boyfriend neads a loan.” According to Murray, “that’s the difference marriage makes.” What a twazzock. No wonder even Mrs Thatcher gave Murray short shrift when he first surfaced over here five years ago.» —“The Typically British Way Of Bastardy” by Francis Wheen Guardian (United Kingdom) May 25, 1994.
