Twerp

From page 69 of Fantastic Mr Fox, Roald Dahl - Puffin

So, I’ve just re-read Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl whilst having a quick lunch before the little man wakes up from his nap. I think one of my favourite bits in the book is:

‘And carrots, Dad!’ said the smallest of the three Small Foxes. ‘We must take some of those carrots.’

‘Don’t be a twerp,’ said Mr Fox. ‘You know we never eat things like that.’

‘It’s not for us, Dad. It’s for the Rabbits. They only eat vegetables.’

Purely because it has been yonks since I heard or read the word “twerp”. Happy Friday everyone!
