A term coined originally in Liverpool to group together a certain type of person through their clothes, language and ideals.
The female scally is often seen with a much older male scally. Hair is scraped back and heavily hairsprayed. Limitless amounts of make-up cover any blemishes, and the look is finsihed off with big hooped earrings. Clothes wise, tracksuit tops and tracksuit bottoms or jeans are preferred, along with the mandatory trainers. VPL always helps. Smoking and a young baby in a second hand pushchair are good accessories.
To find a scally, your best bet will be to parade the local big shopping mall, the local nightspots or, especaiily in seaside resorts, the main parade along the beach where numerous scally cars can be seen circling round, and round, and round...
The general traits of scallies:
They swear more than is necessary,
Get unnecessarily drunk, and smoke marijuana, because they think it is 'kewl'.
They have a tendency to be racist, homophobic, and abusive towards people who have different taste in music to Westlife, and different taste in clothes to tracksuits.
As the scally gets older, he/she'll normally spend his life claiming money from the government, due to not being able to get a job, as the marijuana has destroyed all the mental ability they had, and they spent all their school years attacking mentally ill and elderly people whilst under the influence of alchohol, instead of learning.
It is not uncommon for a female scally to get pregnant so she can claim child benefit, giving her enough money to buy that little bit more of cocaine at the end of the week. But most female scallies are stupid enough to have unprotected sex anyway.
They also happen to have the worst conversational skills, and the worst sense of humour in the world.
scally 2: ha ha ha! yeah... HEY BUS DRIVER! YOU'RE FUCKIN' GAY!
scally 1: ha ha ha... you're dead funny...
ey look at that gaybod over there... he's walkin', an he's got a fuckin' walkin' stick... ha ha ha! old people are so gay.
Oh and of course their knuckles, in their attempt to 'out-scally' the other members in the group (and other people) they will hit random things, even walls, so that their knuckles are injured looking like they have had many fights. but realy, they just look like they have hit many walls, in most cases, this is true.
Typical scallies are the ones that often kick-off with anyone just to show their "bravery"
Half of them just get pissedall the time, at least 70% of them.
All alone, scallies are scared and are pussies, you say anything to them when they are alone, they have no words and start shaking.
Scallies are usually grouped up with a maximum of 5 people together, their brands totally suck, Fred Perry, Burberry etc.
If you ever see an ambulance pass by on a nightclub night, it's usually a typical scally kicking the total shit out of someone.
I hope all scallies burn in hell, especially for dissing Kurt Cobain and the rest of our styles.
FUCKING BURN IN HELL ASSHOLES.
Scallies mind: SHIT, I need my gang of thugs.
Moshers: What a wimp he is shitting his pants.
Scally: FUCKIN' MOSHAZ. (Runs off)
(All moshers laugh)
