I believe it was @Fagan_ODowd who first coined the term on here.

A superb expression

Wonderful .

I thought it was yourself, my apologies @Fagan_ODowd if incorrect.

This appears to be the first sighting of it from a rudimentary search

@Big_Brian_Lohan introduced the term roaster — it’s a common expression around South East Clare/North East Limerick.

And ‘assexual clean shirt dodger.’

Never heard that one.

I thought your catchphrase was;

Huh? I’m Italian mate

@Fagan_ODowd was the first to use it and I may have taken it and ran with it.

It has become part of my every day stock phrases in real life too

A friend of mine used it inthe context of how a young lady treated his son. That’s where I heard it first.

Sensational prowling indeed.

Very unconventional attempt to resurrect the Fagan is a prowler shtick and weird attempt to try and shoehorn it in here.

I’ve been using it on repeat for weeks

Mugged off is a very British expression, a few Geordie Shore fans in here I think.

its a fantastic expression, it works on a few different levels
