The word 'Thrower' is a noun used to describe a petty atrocity that quickly and efficiently renders the perpetrator incredibly unpopular.
This definition originates from FCC (Faringdon Community College) and is coined from the controversial acts of Mr Thrower, the head of sixth form.
A good example of a 'Thrower' is to lock the whole of sixth form out of the common room for the morning, and then confiscate their football when they actually find something to do. This will make you very unpopular apace.
Ben: Argh, John pulled such a Thrower yesterday; he kicked our football over the fence and sold my best friend to a Liberian warlord.

David: Yeah loads of people know about that, he's gonna make himself pretty unpopular now.

Miles: Yeah what a cesspool.
