Nappy

Wargamer "slang" term referring to the Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte [pl. "Nappies" refers to the Napoleonic genre of wargaming]. Offensive to some*, because it is also the English/Irish/Australian/New Zealand term for the American word 'diaper' (i.e., babies underclothes). Note: it also refers to tightly coiled or curled hair. Nappy has many meanings: thefreedictionary.com/nappy


*Considered to be a somewhat childish diminutive, rather than offensive, by some others. And, a term of affection for the little Corsican Ogre. laugh
