How much do you know about tossers?

From a piece in The Independent:
In an attempt to extend its understanding of the roots of some popular words and phrases in the nation's vocabulary, the [OED] is seeking public help...Viewers will be asked to trawl through unpublished papers, old magazines and even dated postcards to find earlier appearances of words including "wally," "wassock" and "tosser" than those examples already cited in the dictionary.
(Thanks for the link, F!)
