Top definition
Primitive humans which lived throughout much of Europe, but particulary in France, and Germany. The term "Neanderthal," derives from the Neanderthal Valley in Germany, where the first fossils were found. Anatomically, they differed from their chief competitors, Cro-Magnon man in that they tended to be more squat, with thicker bones, and brow ridges. They existed through hunter-gathering activities, as did the Cro-Magnon, but seem to have been less technologically innovative, a quality which may have contributed to their ultimate demise.
How many Neanderthals died in encounters with wooly mammoths is anyone's guess.

A subhuman species of hominids that was wiped out by humans ( homosapians). They had small frontal cortex and were short and barrel chested.

Used to be used as someone who was a degenerate or primitive until recently when it was discovered non-africans were mixed with them, now they praise neanderthal admixture

Often called a "Leah". An idiotic human who spends their time hurling abuse in the street because that's all they can do. Their language revolves around the word "fuck", and they insult people who are smarter than them through jealousy and envy.
Often know for 'sponging' off the council, and most of the time they live in a council house because of lack of funds and lazy, idiotic parents.

1. A sports personality, usually very overpaid, who has diarrhea of the mouth, trash talks and has no class at all.

2. Most New York Yankee fans can fit in this description as well. They have a big SUV, usually black or other dark color with a huge NY sticker on the back window. They pronounce "New York" as "New Yawk." They act like jackasses when their team wins.
1. Jeremy Shockey is a football neanderthal.

2. Vinnie is a big New Yawk Yankees fan. He is always calling in to "Spawtz Radio" because he thinks he is a Yankees expert. He even has custom NY Yankees pin striping on his SUV. Yankees fans are douche bags.

A near extinct species of human that was widely distributed in ice-age Europe between circa 120,000 and 35,000 years ago, with a receding forehead and prominent brow ridges. Previously thought extinct but discovered to be living in mostly uninhabitable parts of australia such as the Northern Territory.
Some of the Neanderthals have since migrated to more inhabited places such as Perth, but have been unsuccessful integrating into modern Homo Sapien Sapien culture and society.
"You don't want to go to the Northern Territory, it is overrun with Neanderthals."
