Feb 23 Word of the Day
The process of searching a building for an empty bathroom. A successful bowl search typically relieves the frustration of uncomftorably defecating around others, although in less frequent cases the desire to urinate alone is a factor. Bowl searching can be done anywhere although it is most prevelant on college campuses.
"In college I did a lot of bowl searching."

"Sam went to the bathroom like 20 minutes ago. Jeez, what's taking so long?"

"He's probably bowl searching."

The verb 'To Waz' in northern English dialect means to urinate.

In both West Yorkshire and East Lancashire, offal was very popular and when produced en masse the offal was cooked in linens resembling large pillows and were referred to as 'socks'. These prevented the offal from burning and being ruined when coming in to direct contact with the base or sides of its cooking vessel.

Unsurprisingly these linens absorbed the odour of the offal (which is similar to urine) and were discarded. They were colloquially referred to as 'Waz Socks'. The derogatory sense of a 'Wazzock' to this day refers to someone discarded of having any point, purpose or worth.

Popularised by Tony Capstick (in "Capstick Comes Home") in 1981 and used since as a minor insult (similar to how "idiot" is used as an insult).

Originally meant "bull's penis" (originally described to me as "bull's prick"). See also "wazz" for another derivative of this sense of the word. Whether it was ever applied to other animals or humans I don't know - but as "wazz" is used for human urination in the West and North of England, I'd imagine so.

Was fairly rare in Yorkshire before Capstick's popularisation of it in 1981.
