  • Obsolete variant of "clodpoll," says Webster 2.

    May 25, 2011

  • clotpole is a very old insult, the early form of clodpate. Both can be found in the OED, and essentially mean "dirt head." Clod and clot both mean dirt or earth, pole and pate both refer to someone's noggin (pate more obviously than pole).

  • Out of curiosity, did this word exist before:

    "He's trying to get rid of me and if you weren't such a clotpole you'd see that!"
