  1. (obsolete) an affected pronunciation of stop

Usage notes

  • Used in the phrase "stap my vitals"
  • Used in the phrase "Stap Me!" This phrase was used by the character Captain A.R.P. Reilly-Ffoull in the WWII era cartoon strip Just Jake, published in the British daily The Daily Mirror. This phrase found its way into the RAF -- painted on Spitfires in the 603rd in deference to their Squadron Leader Basil Gerald "Stapme" Stapleton, a fighter pilot hero of the Battle of Britain. "Stap Me!" was not only an expression he used due to his love of the comic strip Just Jake, but it became his nickname and a battle cry of his squadron.
