strange looking residents of the north
east who support the 'cartoon army'.
a few of this breed who can spell can be found frequenting RTG, a Sunderland fan website. With the governments cash injection to tyneside its hoped a few more will be able to read and write and may well set up there own site.

Someone who hangs at the train station or bus stop or anywhere public all day long, usually asking for a cigarette, spare change or pocket lint. Usually unemployed and unemployable, using nothing but slang, and usually impossible to get rid of, until threatened with violence.

Called magpies because if they have gotten it once, they'll expect it again, and again, regardless of who it is.
Person 1 : Yeah, so anyway, me and this chick...
Magpie : 'Ey man, u gutta spare smoke i can borrow??
Person 1 : No, go away
Magpie : Please man, i havent had one all day...please....
Person 1 : I saw you smoking 10 minutes ago, fuck off
Person 2 : GO AWAY you fucking mapie
Magpie : Pleeaase man, i'll pay you back
etc

Slang for a member of the Newcastle United Football Club (NUFC). This is due to the fact that their strip is black and white.
Who do you support?

a person who takes your problem, issue , or situation, and owns it as theirs.

This person turns it to somehow affecting them, and will broadcast it as widely as required in order to get the desired level of sympathy. A magpie will even sacrifice friendships to maintain her/his position.
person 1: have you heard about Jane and Sally losing their cat?

person 2: yeah, and Anna loved that cat but Jane and Sally didn't tell her, she has to find out from Bob.

person 1: Oh Anna is being such a magpie...

person 2: well, they should've told her!

Given the opportunity the Magpie will always steal the shinny goodness. It is from this notion that the term "Magpie" is derived. The steeling of the golden moment through covert photography. The subject - Always an an unsuspecting young lady.
"Look.....that girl is bending over. Quick! Pass me your Phone Camera........i'll Magpie her"

1. One who never shuts up, and snitches on others.
Jim Harris was a magpie, when he found out his sister was drunk, he told his parents.

Somebody who talks like a bird and doesn't shut up! They tend to talk fast and loud!!! They also are hard to understand, due to the fact that the sound that comes from their voicebox is more or less like a Raven!!
"My sister went into a magpie mode when I confronted her on inpersonating me when she was stopped by a peace officer while being under the influence of narcotics and having warrants out for her arrest"
