I had to do a Google search to find out more about Coots. Thanks to your posting today I'm little wiser.

My grandmother used to call the grumpy old man next door an old coot!

As children we would call each other names as "you crazy coot!!" I have visited my relatives in Darlydale - Derbyshire but never managed to see a crazy coot :) Now I know why it is crazy!!
