A wowser is a killjoy - someone who doesn't enjoy the good things of life
(i.e. smoking, drinking and gambling) and doesn't want anyone else to enjoy
them either. (Strange, that. Some of us would refer *not* to have to duck
drunk drivers, breathe in second-hand smoke and pay extra taxes ...)

OK, OK... and I'm not even a Victorian!
