    Question what is "bollocky wank shite"? - British Slang

    Hi,
    could you someone explain me what the "bollocky wank shite" means?

    I found the vocabulary in a British TV drama, "Skins". In the show, "bollocky wank shite" is used when a boy is describing taste of soup made from artichokes and beet-roots.

    This is the line:
    "I want fish and chips. This tastes like bollocky wank shite."


    The nuance I got from the context is that the soup tastes bad and the boy didn't like it. But I want to know more accurate meaning of "bollocky wank shite".


    My Oxford dictionary says:

    bollocks = testicle
    wank = masturbating
    shite = shit


    Then I built the image of "bollocky wank shite" as the dirts of sperms around testicles. Is this correct? Or "bollocky wank shite" is not a material, but a combination of vulgar words which actually mean nothing?

    Well you have well explained the term yourself. It is a combination of 3 rude words joined to intensify the disgusting feeling someone is having.

    'Shite' or 'Shit' is also (wrongly/rudely) used instead of the word 'thing' quite often.

    I wonder if qwernk can spell "disingenuous". He should bear in mind that the Moderators weren't born yesterday...

    In the unlikely case that this is not a troll, please - in future - keep words that you know to be taboo out of thread titles, to avoid problems with RoboNanny software.

    I didn't pay attention about the filtering issues. Sorry about the title.

    And I am not "disingenuous" about this. (I've never actually spelled "disingenuous" before though.) I was not really sure the exact meaning of the "bollocky..." words.

    But again I am sorry about the dirty topic.


    And thanks for BilalMian!

    All three words have basically the same meaning when used to describe something- "bad".

    Using all three is intended to show that the person saying it thinks it is really really really BAD.

    It is also intended to show that the person saying it is poorly educated, has a poor grip of English, and lacks the language skills to express them self other than through the use of swear words.
