Scots. A derogatory term for a contemptible and stupid person. It's origins derive from the aroused state of the penis and hence is used only as a term of abuse for males; although as the genders are becoming harder to distinguish in certain housing schemes in and around the city of Glasgow this can no longer be guaranteed. If one is behaving in a ridiculous manner, and apparently irritable to everyone in the vicinity, one can expected to be denounced as a 'throbber'.

A pulsating vein, usually on the forehead that is a predictor of a violent outlash from a hotheaded person.
Steer clear of Ramon...he's got a throbber and needs someone to skim the turds out of the alligator pit.
