A person who acts as unscrupulously as possible, which includes stealing, lying, identity theft, and more, and is too stupid to realize that everyone knows he is a cretinous weasel, and has seen through his treachery. The cretin has a very high opinion of himself and accuses anyone who disagrees with him or tries to expose him of jealousy and say’s retarded things like “Jealousy has no wings” When exposed.

A cretin uses David-Mortonism’s, or DM’s where he will quote scriptures to defend his position or crimes in a weak attempt to distract or silence people from attacking his behavior. A cretin is too simple minded to formulate his own ideas and communicate them effectively, thus resorting to plagiarism, and thievery to make up simple sentences, syntax and basic communication. A cretin is all things unsavory and distasteful rolled up into an obnoxious usually hideously disgusting ball of wasted flesh marbled blubber. Cretins should be made into low quality soilent green patties.
David M. aka DM post's stolen images from other related sights and attempts to pass them off as his own work on a routine basis. He also copy pastes text from other sites into his forum responses to start debates that he doesn't even understand himself. He uses ridiculous nonsensical terms constantly and floods forums with complete nonsense, "white noise" what a cretin.

Someone who hangs about mainly in a football club, or park. They drink White Ace cider and tend to wear alot of checkers.

Cretins like this are on the dole and use all of their money to buy white ace cider. Often they tick alchol from the shop untill their parents/nan gives them more money

They have 1 best friend (who is equally a cretin) who will worship the ground they walk on and do everything they are told to do.

Cretins are always drunk and play drinking games. They cause trouble on the streets and everyone laughs at them. Cretins do not realise they have a problem or that they are being laughed at. They think they are just having fun and there is nothing wrong it what they are doing. They also take no pride in their personal appearance and tend to look like woody out of "this is england"
