Lowlife scums. Like to wear cheap or over expensive crap, such as "nike", "kappa", "adidas", "reebok" "umbro" and many more...
Start fights with grungers/moshas/punks and goths for absoloutly NO reason.
Manage to cram FUCK in every other sentance. think its funny to act dumb which comes naturally to them.
Townie girls come in to types.
1. Slut like, big mouthed wear hardly any clothes. Bleached hair, to much make up and are turnin yellow from all the fags and not enough sun light.
2. The ones that act like men and wear tracsuit bottoms, have their eyebrow pierced and have nothing better to do except for stealing and hanging around in no particular place of value. (eg. bus stops)
The male of the species are not very varied.
they all skank like they have a bad limb, wear clothes that are really baggy in the middle but really tight at seams and joints. They talk like Ali G, and wear alot of "bling" which we accosiate as cheap painted gold plastic, bought from the local market. they think it's hilarious when something goes wrong, crave attention and think they are "bad boys" or "wellard". Often try to be black (stupid wannabe niggers) and wear thinks from america (basketball vests which are waaaaaaay to big) and have writing containing places in america but being townies they have no idea where they are.
They wear their caps way to high and then where their hoods over the top.
Grungers and other non-townies are all unsafe around these creatures. ~They think insults are "JEW" "YA MUM" "I HAD YA MUM" "NIGGER" (which is what they try to be so?) "GRUNGER" (i mean yeah we know we get ourselves dressed every morning not our mums) and other ridiculous non-insulting words.
We are getting bored from talking about the scums so shall finish there.
example of their odd behaviour:
in town buying a drink, townie comes up to my boyfriends mate and says "how old are ya?" he replies with his age 15. now the height difference between my friend and this tiny townie does not stop him.
We walk out of the shop and the townie starts thrusting his chest towards my mate to which he replies "your hats gay" so this townie ATTEMPT to punch him at which we walk away. then an hour later the same townie walks up to me and say "will you go out with me?". i mean what kinda stupid twat is he?
Social rejects who hang around in groups of 10-50.

Males often seen wearing dirty, worn out rockport boots, burberry socks with luminous green adidas tracksuit bottoms tucked into them, a burbery cap and a nike hoodie over the top (with the hood being worn up), coated with a can of lynx. the hair is gelled into a solid quiff, normally dyed blonde.

Females vary between two types. Type one: the tramp.

The tramp wears similar clothes to the male, if not the same, except topped off with a "great value!" gold necklace from elizabeth duke at argos, often with a clown pendant. 4-16 gold creoles will also be worn in the ears, and a large tacky belly-button piercing is necessary. Type two, the tart wears the same jewelerry except adds 60 grams of orange, blue and pink make up, a pair of tight jeans with "babe" or "angel" written on the ass (only £3 from the local market) and a t-shirt with a similar phrase on it. This is topped off with a pink or baby blue caridigan with "EST 1980" or "TEAM" written across the front in huge white letters. The hair is pulled back into an abnormally tight bun which pulls their skin so much that they cant move their face, other than to chew some stolen wrigleys extra from the local corner shop (oh no sick man).

The music can vary from dance, to pop, to rnb and hip-hop eg Sean Paul, Mis-teeq, Beyonce Knowles, 50 Cent etc. Anyone who does not listen to this music is instantly labelled as a "freak". Same goes for the clothes.

To find a townie, I suggest you look in the following places: bus shelters, mcdonalds, park benches, phone boxes, outside corner shops, and anywhere is the general area of a rough council housing estate.

Communicaing with townies is often difficult considering the fake jamaican accents and unnecessary amounts of slang. Here are a few common phrases to get you started:

Fock ya mom - I have a pinner.
Mo' fockin cuzzen'll fockin batta ya - I would fight you but my 600 grams of hair gel havent dried yet.
Nah man stink - You've offended me.
Sick (pronounced sick-AH) - Word used to describe something of townie approval.

They often have nicknames such as:


You can witness these on various lampposts and bus shelters throught Great Britain.
Townie: Oooom ya fockin lookin' at mate!!! *spits*
Innocent passer-by: I wasn't.
Townie: OH NO! Stink!
Innocent passer-by: 0o'

American definition:
1. For education institutions located outside of cities, a townie is a person who lives and works near the institution but is not affiliated with the school itself. These people are lowly paid and poorly educated.

2. A person who grew up in towns.
The Simpsons:
"stupid townie!"
Homer: "Hey! It's townies like me that cook your food and clean your bathrooms!"
"If you did the former better, we would use the latter less!"
Homer runs off crying
"That's it townie! Run! Run back to your town!"

Actually, townies just want to mess up with people, get in fights with their others dumb townies, smoke around, they don't even know english language, and have no future, and listen to all that kind of shit music called R'n'B Rap and others trashes more. They don't have even respect to each other in their stupi chav crew. In specially when they get in the bus. I had couple problems with townies, they are just the scum of the humanity. If you are a townie mate! You better change you way of living!

if you are not one you will not want to be associated with one or go to places/school or anywhere else with one.
If you are one you will be so sucked into the townie subculture you will think the 'different' are evil.
real townies have warped minds, they evolved from rats basically. To put it bluntly, you wouldn't want to bump into a townie in a dark alley.

key words/things to look out for:
burberry, von dutch, vicky pollard, year 7&8&9&10&11 kids soiled in make-up and bling, clubland cd's, cigarettes, wkd, 'whatevar' 'biatch' 'schlag' 'omg feck aff'

sounds like: when you have a sweet in your mouth, don't say the end of words. so if it was walking it would be walkin'

for their ears: blazin squad, khia, dj sammy, any trancy music. look out for music with no instruments.

piercings: ears, nose

intentions: evil

sex status: washed-up

exsist in: hundreds and thousands
two townie girls at the beach pass two non-townie boys.

girl:omg look at tha minga'
girl 2: e's a goffik!!!
girl: UH lets chopse 'im

Well, lets start with the obvious shall we, a townie is from the TOWN. they have rules to which they must adhere at all times to avoid being 'fuckin' batad' by their 'cru'. contrary to popular belief, townies to do not favour buying cheap, tacky fake jewellery or 'bling' at argos, as this would be far to expensive. instead they head to the local market where they use their natural townie or chav instincts to search out and obtain the biggest knuckle duster they can find. Whilst 'daan da markit' they may also spy a rather fetching 'trackie' possibly of neon colouring and fake branding (ie. nuke, adidat etc) they will purchase this outfit and wear it, trousers being tucked into their socks. Those amongst them who dare to be different (heaven forbid) may wear, along with said tracksuit bottoms, a jacket embroidered with the words 'boston', 'babe' etc. The females of this species (origins are uncertain, although scientists are doing research) will wear their hair scraped back on their heads. It is also very likely they will have used the contents of Boots’ stock room of hairspray so not one lump or bump is visible. The males will not have this problem as they have no hair, simply a shaved head and a cap placed carefully at 90 degrees to their empty heads. (they must also have a black eye so as to gain the respec of their ‘posse’) Finally, if you are unable to spot a townie, hang around a group of mopeds and soon enough, their owners (being townies) will saunter bak, wankered on cheap cider but pretending (cuz they’re hard) that they’re sober. They will spot you and start walking over (the distinctive ‘i’ve got a shit trying to escape from my back passage’ walk) claiming they’re gonna ‘fuckin batta ya’ if you don’t move away from they’re “expensive transportation”. This is your clue to laugh and then floor them if they piss you off a bit. Or if you’re just a bit bored.
example = any loser who can't understand words with more than one syllable.

a townie is an under-educated, brain damaged product of the welfare state who really should have been aborted at the earliest oppertunity.

Often found commiting various crimes and "'angin" around cheap discount shops and market stalls that sell fake clothing with the hideous burberry pattern.

they lack the ability to communicate in anything above "errr", "Wot" and "Nah" with the most intellegent of them someday becoming a valued member of the fast food service industry although most will end up living off the welfare state to support them and their eqaully intellectually diluted offspring's drug and fake burberry addiction.

the following solutions would render the townie an endangered species:

1: invest in a large shotgun and declare "townie hunting season" open

2: Remove state "benifit" payments from them and make them get jobs, in this case most would die off because their immense stupidity negates their chances of getting even a MacDonolds job.

3: Anyone who falls into the "townie" category should be sterillized immidiatly to stop further generations sucking money out of the economy and littering the landscape with their useless carcasses.
a "townie" most often lives on or near a council estate where the average income is based on how many drugs they can sell or bikes they can steal

Typically white British youth that think they're "niggas", but haven't quite pulled it off right and have created a different subculture than hip hop/R&B fans in the US. Their favorite artists would be ashamed of them if they knew what they'd created. Wear Adidas and Kappa but have probably never set foot on a track in their lives.
The girl with the bleached blonde hair, the exposed fat roll between the track pants and too tight shirt saying "hottie" or "princess" or "porn star" is a townie, and much more likely to beat you up in the UK than she would be in America, where she'd probably just be called a slut or a ho.
