Originally a word for someone who is a drunkard, over-fond of ale, of tossing the pot of ale back.

Earliest example of this known is in 16th century Elizabethan English,
Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night", has the word in the closing part of the play, in Feste's song.

Nice to see it's still used, even if the meaning could be slightly different.
"But when I came unto my beds,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
With toss-pots still had drunken heads,
For the rain it raineth every day."

That Kevin is an effin tosspot, pissed out of his head again.

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

An old English double-noun which, because of the use of the word, toss and its own synonymous resonance with masturbation and wank, does not mean "a wanker".

A toss-pot is a drunkard, a toper; a would-be alcoholic still managing to function in society.
Oh, for fuck's sake, you haven't left the cellar key with that old toss-pot?

You really are a silly old toss-pot, aren't you? I was, I guess, somewhat taken aback when you threw up all over the Bulgarian Ambassador, but I do so love you very much, Poppet. x
