Tosser (North America)
A tosser in Britain is just another word for a wanker but in North America it means that among other things.
A tosser can come in many shapes and forms. A tosser is moreless an urban male. Most common is the kind of guy that walks around looking like a homo without necessarily being gay. University campuses are typically breeding grounds for this type of person. A dead give away that someone is a tosser is when you see a guy wearing thick framed glasses, carrying his notes or laptop in any sort of over the shoulder man purse and has a rooster style hair do. They like to think they are the bohemian creative class of North America but they’re whores to corporate America as much as anyone as they are sure to have the latest in laptops, cell phones and palm pilots. They can often be found in coffee shops like starbucks, in a classroom showing more enthusiasm than the average student towards their professor’s lesson or on the streets of any big city on a business day.
Tossers tend to be liberal which is generally a good thing. I care about the environment and human rights as much as anyone but they make it gay by wearing those little buttons on their man purses and coats that say stuff like “Take Action Now”, “Lower Tuition Fees” and the classic “AIDS. Don’t Ignore It”.
You may be a tosser if…
You are a male
You go to University and are in a liberal arts program
You grab your ankles
You tell adults you know about your school program
You frequent internet cafes
You have a job writing for a magazine
You can’t bench press your own weight
You buy coffee from starbucks
You carry a laptop in a man purse
You did not play any sports in high school
You go shopping with your mommy like a sissy
You have a job at the body shop
You gel your hair in a rooster style
You are an advocate for smart cars and other green technology
You wrote or are writing a thesis
You talk to people about your stress levels or exam schedule
You listen to pussy music like Coldplay or Sam Roberts
You look towards Europe for fashion and style inspiration
You have a lot of female friends that you have no sexual attraction to
You say you care about world poverty but all you do is write about it
You do ballet, theater or are a member of a wussy sports program like rowing
If you said yes to a lot of this, you need to stop being a little queerass toss bag and grow a pair.

I tought University would be the illest four years of my life but everywhere I look I see tossers loving life because they are in their element.
Literally, one who masturbates. Common usage typically refers to anyone of whom you have a low opinion.

Implies that the person masturbates excessively. Also see Wanker.

ok, here's the true explanation:
while the word wanker is a more general and term for expressing disdain for somebody, the word tosser describes a person with a tendency to show off or brag in an excessive and embarrassing way.
or someone whose explanation of a word consists solely of another synonym.
"well at first i thought this guy delivers, but in the end he was just another tosser."
A asks: hey, what does tosser mean?
B answers: duh, it means: wanker.
A thinks: what a tosser.
B thinks: damn, i'm smart...
another way to say wanker.
Man City supporters are all tossers.
As far as I'm aware tosser has nothing to do with mastubation but comes from an old sailing term for a drunken idiot - 'he's a toss pot' - ie someone who drinks a lot is a tosser or toss pot.
Noun, British slang; slightly offensive term: dick head, jerk, idiot, bit slow and rough, a non-violent bully, loud and rude + not brightest bulb on the tree.
Verb, Toss off, British slang for male masturbation; not the same meaning as the noun "Tosser."
When the cop got to my car and asked for my ID, he realized he'd pulled over the wrong car; what a tosser!
