Manky is when something is exceptionally unpleasant or gross. It can be applied to just about anything, like telling someone their feet smell manky or saying you had a really manky day. You can yell it at the top of your lungs, too. People might stare, but you gotta let it out. You can even use it just to name-call; try it the next time your boyfriend leaves hair in the sink or gives you a crap drunken phone call. “Ugh...manky!” It’s a British word, so you won’t have to worry about a lot of other people using it.
