I'd say it's the equivalent to calling someone a Jackass in USA.

RE: Word of the day
I have been told that Dick Van Dyke's English accent isn't familiar to the Brits. Is that true? We have a few shows here- with British actors that can do an American accent perfectly.

According to the Guinness World Records site
The longest known palindromic word is saippuakivikauppias (19 letters), which is Finnish for a dealer in lye (caustic soda).
I wonder if Kimmi has ever said it...

Why would you actually have a specific word for a dealer in caustic soda - must be a major entrepreneurial pursuit in Finland to be have a name specifically created for it Cool
