Scousers are an interesting result of the industrial revolution and Liverpool is a true immigrant city equalled only with London, New York and Buenos Aires. Most Scousers are of Irish and Welsh descent though the city has long standing Chinese, West African and Scandinavian communities with the term 'Scouser' coming from the dish 'Lobscouse' which is a bastardization of the Norwegian word 'labskaus' which is a Norwegian lamb/mutton stew.

I have read a lot of the enteries on here and knowing the city and a lot of the people I feel I can make a decent unbiased job of writing a fair review about Liverpool.

Scousers are famous for the sense of humour, though they can laugh at others and do so regulary, they cannot laugh at themselves, any joke about Liverpool is taken as a great insult, Scousers tend to have a victimized/martyrdom complex but despite this they are capable of great acts of charity and benevolence. Scousers more often than not employ a disarming but superficial friendliness to strangers - it is only when you get to know a Scouser that they start to grate.

Scousers have a 'big man' complex, most Scousers are not physically big nor physically hard though they are able to intimdate people through shouting at them with a guttural accent that has changed a lot in the past 30 years so they can sound more tough. Scousers can be violent and aggresive but the vast majority cannot fight to save their life - another paradox of this is that Liverpool is a famous amateur boxing city and has produced many fighters in the lighter weight divsions though never a really good big man and they never will due to the typical Scousers puny physique.

The 'Big Man' complex is more apparent in the workplace, Scousers as a rule loath to work but when forced to put in a days graft, Scousers all want to be the boss - 99.9% of them aren't capable of bossing a lemming over the cliff but their attitude to earning a honest living means they aren't receptive to working 8 hours a day under the orders of someone else - strikes and industrial action is still common in Liverpool even in these fraught times - Scousers therefore like to go into small business such as window cleaning and market stall trading and the shadier ones go into petty crime such as burgulary, drug dealing etc.

Liverpool is a great city in many ways that has inspired great artists,
writers, poets and musicians and is one of the most aestheically beautiful architectural cities in the world - however Scousers have a love hate relationship with Manchester - a horrid shit tip 30 miles away - It is lost on the majority of Scousers that the Mancunian is the most closest thing to a Scouser you can get in look, attitude and lifestyle. Scousers are nothing like Geordies or Glaswegians like they purport to be, but the Scouser and the Mancunian is an near identical animal.

The one thing you will never ever hear a Scouser saying is 'Oh! I never/didn't know that?' Scousers know everything about anything. A Scouser will never admit to not knowing about any subject on planet earth and is quite capable of telling a brain surgeon how to do thier job despite the fact the Scouser in question might be a milkman or a doley or something equally as tragic.

Scousers have a highly developed and protective sense of self, they are proud to be born in the city and any 'Texan' 'Plazzy' or 'Wool' who claims to be one of them is going to get the heave ho before long, they are not tolerant of non Scousers claiming to be Scousers.

Even the good people of Birkenhead, Kirkby, Huyton and Skem are seen as 'plazzies' even though the rest of the planet see them as Scousers. It is a complex state of affairs. (If you are from Skem that is!)

The true Scouse accent is Celtic in origin, it is a mixture of Welsh, Irish and Lancastrian dialects, the lilting sounds of John Lennon have now been replaced by the rasping, guttural sound
of the Scouser of today - apparentley
TVs Eastenders is the biggest influence in the change of the accent over the past 30 years!

Liverpool has a higher ratio of beautiful women than in other parts of the UK down to the high racial mixing
of the populace - its is not uncommon for your bog standard Scouser to have a
Somalian/Paraguayan/Egypt ian/Burmese etc grandparent or great grandparent which leads to attractive women - though their attractivness is negated by their big mouths and bad attitudes - mind you
they have been dealing with their male counterparts since birth so I can understand it but I wouldn't want any part of it!

I could do a piece about the football but a) It has been covered ad nauseum and b) I would have to mention Heysel and the pre 1989 'Munich 58' song.
Ey larrrrrrrrrr - yer allright - Have yer got any bifters on yer like - me giro comes in tomorrer.

Greatest people in the world from the greatest City in the world.

From the city that is home to England's greatest ever pop group and greatest ever football team. (FACT!)

The only negative about Liverpool is that it's much too close to Manchester.

Inhabitant of a slum in the North West of England called Liverpool.

Has a massive inferiority complex to the rest of the human race, thinks the world owes them a living, avoids all forms of work - claiming various disabilities.

Other definition "pikey in a council House"

Uniform Piss stained tracksuit bottoms, lacoste tshirt(unwashed) scuffed and stinky Fila trainers, Baseball cap worn at an absurd angle and a enough cheap gold jewellery (usually bought from Argos or stolen) to put Mr T to shame.

They speak like they are constantly attempting to cough up a greeny.

Avoid at all costs, attracted to all things shiny!

scousers are inhabitants of the city of liverpool in the UK, officially the roughest chaviest place in the word where more than half of the people are on the dole. liverpool is full of run down council houses, boarded up shops, graffiti and a group of chavs on evry street corner.

scousers are portrayed in the media as thieving, violent, inbred, drug abusing, scumbags who sign on as soon as they leave school, if they went that is... and this is a fairly accurate portrayal.

most scousers either support everton or liverpool football clubs, with those seen as supporting everton as 'real' scousers or liverpudlians and liverpool supporters seen as glory hunting chavs who cant realise that their club has had its time.

scousers and 'Mancs' traditionally have a rivarly based on football. With Manchester Uniteds recent success and liverpools failure to win a cup in years they barley have a case to argue however the rivarly is one of the most bitter in football and rightly so.

all scousers want to shag steven gerrard or jamie charrager... when they are not shagging there mum, sister or cousin that is.

scousers speak with an anoying sqeeky accent like their balls havent dropped and can not pronounce a C or K with out growling and bring in up all flem possible in the back of their throats. The scouse accent is easily the most annoying and roughest.
a scouser is normally wearing a tracksuit, with their tracky bottoms tucked in their socks and a cap on the back of their head, normally wearing a soverign ring, a skin head is a must and probably a tattoo of their own name or their ex's.

Any tramp who looks like that have been in a fight over a can of stella

sign on , sign on
with hope in your heart
because you'll nevvveeerrrr get a job

no you'll neeeevvvvveeeeeerrrrrr get a job

sign on , sign on

I HATE the accent it really grates on me and I have found it hard to have found it hard to talk with a lot of them probably cos they are so loud. I don't like those Lacoste tracksuit wearers.
