    I've heard it several times - someone says they're going to get lunch and someone comments "sandwich wa**er". Someone wrote on Facebook the other day "anyone want to go camping this weekend?" and one of his friends replied "tent wa**er".

    Funny, but I don't get it.

    I guess you're the only one seeing it ;) And honestly, I don't understand it. Sorry.

    Never seen it and I don't understand it either.

    In the UK I'd imagine it's from the Inbetweeners show, which is massive over here.

    It stems from "bus w***kers" which is a joke in the show.

    I know there's an American version so if you're in the U.S., maybe it's from that?

    Pretty sure this is where it comes from I think definitely something that happens in the UK for everything.

    Apparently in the inbetweeners US remake, they called them "bus turds"...... I did try watching a couple of episodes of the US remake, it was really really bad.

    There's a comparison between the two in the clip

    ***Some people may find the language in the clip offensive***

    I could not figure out for the life of me what wa**er was!! Haha. But yea my thoughts exactly. Perhaps a incredibly polite person that is attempting to not offend anyone at all. =]

    Not sure about in America, but it's a fairly rude word in the UK. Definitely on the level of f***/s***.

    To be accused of being a wanker is to be accused of being inferior in some action/attitude. Therefore, to be called a sandwich wanker by someone is to be mocked for not eating "proper" food, (usually something disgusting, such as pizza). :)
