Handsomely played by all concerned.
One of my “clients” when I worked at the dole office was a Mr Wanker when asked, he said he was proud to be one.

And then there was Marjorie Pissflaps in Happy Days. It was a more innocent time.

And just in case you’re a little bit in the dark, we found this here.
Arnold Wanker is the music store’s tyrannical landlord and Fred’s former classmate whom Mork brought back from the dead. The character’s name was probably intentionally concocted by the writers, who frequently tried to sneak things past the ABC censors. “Wanker” is a British slang, meaning a man who frequently masturbates, which has become a very common insult. For early UK airings, the episode was censored whenever Wanker’s last name was uttered.
