    At Jonjin's Bakeoff we discussed the potential merits and amusement of having a Twat of the day vote. Basically you'd be allowed tovote for the most annoying or stupid poster. Could be a lot of fun methinks.What do you reckon?

    'Knobhead of the day' could be seen as a lighthearted label whereas 'twat' may be taken offensively. Perhaps fuckwit of the day or arse of the day might be better...
    Personally I'm all for 'cunt of the day' but I guess this might cause friction...
    I don't like stuff that sucks.

    I think "Idiot" or "stupidest post of the day" would be fine.

    There is a huge North / South divide over the use of the word 'Twat'

    Down South it is inoffensive, the 'twat' is just a bit of a wally, it is a rather mild insult and a word I would happily use in front of my mother.

    Up North it is the same as using the 'C' word and equally offensive.


    Be careful about 'Berk' as well.

    Originally it was Rhyming Slang for Berkshire Hunt

    If you used it in the original context you could make a right twat of yourself
