a southeastern Ohio term meant to insult someone. Originated in Glouster, Ohio near Athens in the 60's and became a phrase to describe someone or someplace as unkempt, poor, or smelly. This term is used by ignorant people with low IQs to make themselves feel superior.
Fact: the football field at Athens High School carries the name "Basil R. Rutter Stadium" because my husband's rich Uncle Basil donated a large sum of money years ago to rebuild it. This did not discourage the insensitive remarks.
you are dirty as a rutter, looks like a rutter lives here
