Definition

Duffer. Idiot. Dim-wit. Big part of Punjabi slang. The word literally means "donkey", which is never a great compliment in any language.

Employed often by Sardars or Delhi-ites, especially when irritated or annoyed. Usage varies widely based on the situation, from affectionate to friendly to mildly offensive to I'm-feeling-suicidal-today.

The word has gender specific forms (Male : Khota, Female : Khotee). A gender-neutral version exists too, which works just as well for an entire herd of duffers (Khotey)

Usage

Surdie Boy : Papaji, my foot is on the accelerator. Then why is the gaddi not moving?

Surdie Papa : Khote! That's the brake, oye!!!
