German word for wanker
Often used to insult people who are really pissing somebody off.
wichsen means masturbate but also is used as an insult, mostly the noun
The noun 'Wichser' (literally 'wanker', a person who masturbates, usually male) is a quite frequently used pretty strong term of abuse. Even though the literal meaning is different it is pretty much equivalent in usage to the english word 'Motherf*cker'. e.g. 'Ihr Wichser!' - 'Motherf*ckers!' (plural)

Wow, that second one seems stronger. You know, Down Under "wanker" is almost a term of endearment!
