Sham is generally used in Ireland, it is almost the Irish equivalent of the British Chav.

Sham's are rare bucks hey. Generally seen out at the disco steaming. They can be seen during the week diffing on the roads like the mad header shams that them thar bucks are.

The mating call of a sham is a sham-flick. A sham-flick is when you wave your hand around like a mad cunt while clicking your fingers. This is deemed to be more skillful to shams than any other art form.
Normal Person 1: Hey! Who's that person over there, diffing in a twin-cam, clicking his fingers in an absurd way, listening to Lil' Wayne, wearing a bright Nike shirt whilst looking like a complete knob.

Normal Person 2: Oh, that's a sham

Irish slang (mostly used in the southern County of Cork, famous for its plethora of slang terms)

a "sham" is primarily the term used to describe a young male knacker, specifically the ones who walk around with a chip on thier shoulder, thinking they own everything in sight, and that they are the greatest thing on god's green earth

it can also be used to show genuine praise, much to the same affect as "the shit".
