Skutch (rhymes with "butch") is NOT an ebonics word (don't know where they got that idea from) and definitely does NOT mean "slut" or anything like it. It means "pest" and has been used for several generations by Italian-Americans. It comes from the Italian word, "scocciare" (pron. skoh-CHA-reh)which means "to bother or annoy".
Someone who is beyond annoying; someone who "rattles your chains" purposefully to get a negative or hostile reaction. A devilish person who tests another's patience TO THE LIMIT !
A younger brother can be a skutch to his angelic, PERFECT sister in order to drive her CRAZY with rage --- so that She will get blamed for losing her temper in the presence of her parents. When the parents are not looking, the DEVILISH brother will then smile at his sister, thinking "Gotcha !"
Another work for skank, but nastier. There were two men's magazines in the 60's called 'skank' and 'skutch.' Both featured chunky 20 something white broads with big saggy titties, bleach blond hair, red lips and nails, and a cigarette.
Uh, dat one nasty skutch, can smell her through the TV.
This word is a hybrid it is a girl who is 1/3rd Skank 1/3rd slut, and 1/3rd hooch. ETYMOLOGY Late Ebonics to discribe one of the neighborhood tramps that we just could not find a repulsive enough word for.
"Damn", Said Pat "That girl Angie is fucking everybody, what a Skutch"
