"...and don't give me any more of this listening to the news tosh!"
- Vernon Dursley to Harry (OP1)

Definition

Nonsense. “The slang tosh is a blend of the words ‘trash’ and ‘bosh.’ Bosh comes from the Turkish word for empty. Tosh means ‘nonsense’ or ’empty, worthless talk.'” (contributed by Sebastian Chen)
