British slang for obtaining goods and services without having to pay for them. The word can be used in two rather different ways:
1 If it is for personal advantage then the word has certain negative implications, that the person doing the

scrounging is not wholly trustworthy;
2 If it is to further a project at work or to obtain goods, materials or money for a charity then there can be a certain

amount of admiration.
1 β€œI see Jan’s mumping drinks again.”

β€œWhat a scrounging old fart she is.”
2 β€œHow did you get the job finished so quickly?

β€œJohnny went out scrounging and brought back some brand new 2 x 1 someone had dumped in a skip.”

Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.
