Also another obvious one is SLEEPYHEAD (and surely there is a FUCKHEAD
somewhere in print).
But then -HEAD--especially in the sense of 'one who likes X' (cf. the
similar queeer-slang term -QUEEN)--can be suffixed to just about any noun
or adjective, so any "list" has to be pretty meaningless, unless it is
confined to opaque compounds (e.g., TOEHEAD) it seems to me.

Uh, has anybody mentioned "lunkhead" yet (the fact that I don't remember if
anyone did probably qualifies me as one?)?
