first, I don't use Roget's. I use the storehouse of derogatories that has built up in the crusty cobwebs of my mind.
Jerk? not mine. unless we're talking about jamaican vinegary hot spiced chicken breasts (NOT WINGS).
Mr Peacock? not mine. that would just remind me of NBC station ID from my misspent youth perpetually glued to the TV.
A-hole? that's the coward's polite vulgarity, the most oxymoronic thing I know of. definitely not mine.
dolt, eedjit (NOT idiot), brounie, sh!tbird... indeed, they are mine.
ZORRO is one that Mr S Johnston (distinct from SJJohnston, greedy captialism/economics excuse monger) gained after his own creation WTFH, since Zorro is spanish for "fox"
