Comment (I am not the nominator) I nominated one of these for RFV some time ago and it failed. Not only is usage hard to track down in some cases, the definitions are written in 1811 'euphemistic' English and are sometimes bloody hard to understand. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:15, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

I am going through the Category:Classic 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue and attempting to verify all of the terms in it. Those I cannot find in use, I am bringing here. I have cited Adam Tiler (although most of the quotations involve people not knowing what it means), but there is only one good citation for the plural. — Beobach 20:31, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

(...and I consider it entirely plausible that the term only exists in the singular. — Beobach 19:37, 27 November 2010 (UTC))
Meh, kept with two citations (one in the right spelling and case), using a somewhat relaxed standard due to the fact that the singular is attested. - -sche (discuss) 20:46, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
