Wye aye man. Ama Scouser from Liverpool innit? sure thats gordie, never mind. Not all scousers are twats however about 90% are, nice people include ken dodd and the beatles.

On the contrary people are simple scared of scousers because they talk to you. i.e on the train "mind if i read that paper you've finished with?" in liverpool "sure mate" in london "oh my god someone's talking to me on the tube arrrrrrrrrrrr"

Most do where lacoste, and lots of gold, shame, some do steal cars, most sell drugs, that's the only reason people get shot - but then surly liverpool has a fairly low gun and car crime rate compared to some places.
alright der lad

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/Egyptian/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.

Scouser - 'Yer not a troooo Scouser - yer from Birkenhead'

A scouser is the universal term used to describe a person from Liverpool and more importantly one who is on the lower rung of society. Scousers are generally poor and fill their need for televisions with thieving addictions. Scousers can be found in poorly lighted car parks and dark alleys.
That guy who stole your TV was probably a scouser.

The World Cup was stolen by a scouser.

As everyone has said, a scouser is someone from Liverpool. Like all cities, Liverpool has its scum but I have to say they were colourful and well-mannered. When I stayed there in 1991 I witnessed a branch of Dixons being broken into one night but the thieves were all very polite. They wished me good evening as I went past and went to pains to ensure I wasn't hit by any flying glass from the window they were breaking. I felt this was a very nice touch.
"Oh no! Someone has broken my car window and nicked the radio! But at least they swept the broken glass up - They must be a scouser!"

u make me sick people on here probably havent even been to liverpool and ur sitting there calling them if u took the time to come here u'd know that we dont have perms that went out years ago and were do u get shell suits from and if u must know lascoste is a very expensive brand
who says carm down carm down anymore

Horrible cunts from the biggest shithole that is liverpool. The lads wear shellsuits, and in every sentence say "la". Make sure you have a umbrella with you as they spit as they speak. Anyone male who has 3mm longer hair is apparently "gay laaaaaaaa" and they are child killers.
They call people from st. helens woolbacks but they are too thick to realise that the term refers to someone who worked on the docks in the 60's. The women are butt ugly and usally sport quiffs, bleached white hair, and apply their make up with shovels.
" eh up laaaaaaaaa ur a pure woollllll arent ye larrrrrrrrrrr but im a scouser"
