2 A member of the traveller community who moves onto a public open space and wrecks everything within two square miles. It has been known for the burglary rate in the local area to increase by as much as 2000% when gypos move into the neighbourhood. A gypo may try to gain work by offering to tarmac your drive for £5000. They may also try to sell flowers and/or stolen goods door to door. Occasionally, even if they have not moved into the area, they can be seen driving around in a battered up old Transit van trawling through skips looking for metal that can be 'weighed in'. These people are generally best avoided and it is extremely unwise to engage in any kind of confrontation with them.
3 A person who does something on the cheap.
abbreviation of gypsy
Passer by "Nah mate, i'll get a 1500 quid fine if I get caught."
2 "The fucking gypos are going through the skip again"

Newly met friend: "Im gypo cuz".
Friend 1:Whats he on about?
Friend 2: He's egyptian
Friend 3: HAHA you're egyptian?, hows the pyramids goin bro?
***Note: This term doesn't apply to ALL Egyptians...just the vast majority.
"How many times do I have to tell you, gypo, I don't want to buy no damn papyrus!"
"Wait...let me get this straight...you want me to give you money for annoyingly following me around this exhibit and providing me with completely unsolicited and probably inaccurate descriptions of what I'm looking at? Typical gypo."
"Oh really, a soda cost 8 pounds? Well guess what, I can read Arabic and the sign clearly says 3 pounds. Didn't see that one coming, did you, gypo?"
"Hold on Mr. Gypo, let me get this straight. You actually expect me to believe that this stupid little trinket in your crappy shop once belonged to Ramsees II, and is therefore a pricless artifact, which you are willing to sell me for 50 pounds? When are you gypos gonna learn!?"
"You've been following me for 8 blocks! I didn't want to buy an perfume at block 4 and I don't want any now! You gypos may be annoying as hell, but I guess I can't help but admire your moxie!"
"Oh, I think I know this game. It's the one where you kindly approach me and ask if you can help, I ask for directions, and then you lead me to your uncle's carpet shop! I'm on to you, gypo."
"Some punk tried to con me into staying at his hotel by telling me the one I had a reservation for burnt down last week, even though I exchanged emails with the manager a day ago. These gypos are out of control."
