tit

tit
n
1a.
a breast. Various Old Germanic lan-guages and late Latin dialects contained related words formed on the root tet- or tit- (teta in Spanish and teton in French are modern cognates). 'Teat' was, for many centuries, the standard English form; in the 17th century the alternative spelling and pronunciation tit began to be used. It was only in the 20th century that the variant spellings and pronunciation clearly differentiated the vulgar and standard usages.
1b.
any button, knob, nipple or small pro-tuberance
► You have to attach it to the tit on the end.
1c.

1d. women in general, seen as sexual partners. An exclusively male vulgarism.
► There's loads of tit around.
2.
a fool, buffoon. The word has been heard in this sense since the early 20th century in British usage.
► 'There were two outstanding things about Q.E.D.'s "The Battle Of The Sexes" - Faith Brown. Stuart Hall merely made a right tit of himself.' (Charles Catchpole, News of the World, 5 February 1989)
