Haha Grant Very Happy

It means that its rubbish or shite (for want of a better word).

Sometimes you may want to customize or change the expression so it becomes different or more your own. My personal favourites are 'wankpot!' and - in the words of Rick Mayall - 'Oh Wank Biscuit!'

There you go Grant. Have fun and be careful now. Smile Haha

Usually it's a verb... you do it! Well, maybe you do. Damn, keep digging...

But uh, yeah. Using it as a noun is comical, and somehow less offensive, I think. It's good. Feels very English, and I like that.

"no dear. he was wank! im sorry. ive never seen someone so wank in my entire wanking life"
