TWAT


Twat: The word twat is vulgar slang for the human vulva, but is more widely used as a derogatory epithet, especially in British English, referring to a person considered obnoxious or stupid. It is also used informally as a verb in British English to mean "to hit or punch a person". In British English and Commonwealth English, it is pronounced /twæt/ to rhyme with that, or sometimes /twɔːt/, to rhyme with thought. In North American English, it is pronounced /twɑːt/, to rhyme with squat. The word may originate from Old Norse þveit (thveit) meaning 'cut, slit, or forest clearing'.

*Twat is usually pronounced by Rogues such as Pizz as this: [TWAAAAAAAAAAAAAT] And used in many sentences to make Toidy laugh hysterically in voice chat, for example:  "Hey Toidy TWAT are you doing right now?" It seems only Toidy is affected in this manner by this word.
