What does "kojuuto" means in slang?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anybody could tell me what 小舅 (kojuuto) means? I know that literally, it means brother-in-law, but I'm looking for the slang meaning of the term.

Thanks for your time,
Lucubrator

I believe it is a negative term used for calling your opponant something nasty in an argument (how I've seen it anyway), but not sure of the exact meaning. Hopefully someone else will be able to help more.

And by the way, it is "kojuuto," not "kojuuta." I did remember that much at least. :)

Ah, yeah...you're right about the spelling. Thanks for your help too! I'd still like to get a more definite meaning on it though.

Konnichiwa Lucubrator-san! Elizabeth-san!

Kojyuuto(or Kojyuto) is "one's brother in law" or "one's husband's brother" correctly. And usually, this word is used as a negative term.:p
