Rather common, potentially fearsome and almost entirely insane lower-class countryside dweller wont to shouting "GET ARFF MOY LARND!" and pointing a 12-bore at one. Fond of tractors, cider and unpleasant acts with farmyard creatures, he or she serves a purpose. Quite whatthat is, apart from making a good beater and emptying the slurry pit occasionally, is moot.
