nonce

first i recall hearing this word in a slang sense was in
lock, stock, and two smoking barrels: "piss off, you
nonce!"

the way i parsed it was like none, nothing, piss off you
nothing. any number of nouns would have fit that blank.

but, apparently, it is more specific ~ LAZY_TITLE

in the years between, though, i've actually come to know
nonce as a cryptographic buzzword. a one-time pad is a
perfect example of a nonce. piss off, you one-time pad
