: : A tosser in the UK is a bit of a jerk or an idiot. Any idea who or what is being tossed? Could it be rhyming slang?
: Slang certainly but not rhyming. I can't think of a delicate way of saying that in the UK male masturbation is known as tossing off.
Well gosh, I should have seen that coming. I still don't get the tossing part, but maybe I'm being too literal.
