Okay, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but someone (Alan, you know who you are) suggested I did something for the word ‘guttersnipe’.
Well, the dictionary will tell you that guttersnipe means “1: a homeless vagabond and especially an outcast boy or girl in the streets of a city. 2 : a person of the lowest moral or economic station.”
I, however, always imagine the picture below whenever I see or hear the word. Poor little snipe in a gutter.
He’s just a poor snipe from a poor family?
It being a guttersnipe, it probably ought to be shouting lewd remarks, now I think about it…
