  • In the film Withnail and I, Uncle Monty says: "Do you mean you've been up in all this beastly mud and oomska without wellingtons?"

    Since he's talking about muddy lanes in the English Lake District which cows have been passing through, "oomska" presumably refers to cow dung - or at any rate to some unpleasant gunge of which cow dung is a main constituent.
