Try yabby instead, for a little vowel variety……

POLL DESCRIPTION

I received a complaint a few months back from someone who objected to the use of "yobbo" as an insult. I'm not familiar with the term, so I wondered how offensive it really is. According to this online dictionary thefreedictionary.com/yob yob or yobbo are British slang for "A rowdy, aggressive, or violent young man."
