How about a literal definition as well? Meaning intended is all well and good, but...

lit: 'mouth of shit'; 'shit-eater'

gobshite is also a noun describing what comes out of the mouth of a gobshite.--Haryadoon 08:45, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

RFD 2014Edit

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.


“(Ireland, UK, slang, moderately offensive) Epithet, implying a person of poor judgement, low intelligence and/or ignorance, whose application of such deficiencies has adverse consequences for others as well as themselves. There may be an inference of repeated debacles cause by the person.”

seems redundant to:

“(Ireland, UK, slang, moderately offensive) A person of very poor judgment and unpleasant character.”

Could they have meant to add it as an adjective? — Ungoliant (falai) 02:19, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
