    Hi everybody.
    Come tradurreste "butt-wads"? La frase completa è: "Yeah! Oh, man, we were wasted twenty-four-seven, and I got the message (che è diventato padre), and I just thought my friends were messing with me. Those butt-wads!" e una nota dice (butt-wads: childish slang - someone annoying or foolish).
    Thanks in advance!

    In Italiano dovrebbe corrispondere a rompic......., o magari più semplicemente idioti.

    Probably impossible to translate. Imagine something rolled-up (a "wad") and placed in the posterior (butt) of someone. It is very negative, "childish" as stated, and rarely used by adults because it is not "strong" enough.

    So a sort of "tampone da cu:warn:", a childish version of t:warn:d.
    Rompiscatole, fessacchiotti, stupidotti, bambocci, etc.
    Thanks, Tim & Time!

    Hi Necsus,

    When you say "a childish version of t:warn:d". What exactly does t:warn:d stand for?
    I was trying to place it but I just can't seem to fill in the blanks.

    Thanks in advance.

    Turd. Is it not the right term? (It's not an abuse, I know)

    Yes, it's the right term. I was just a little bit slow :eek:
