snot

n
1.
mucus from the nose. The word is from the Middle English snotte, itself from the Old English gesnot, variant forms of which existed in all Germanic languages. These terms are related either to 'snout' or to an Indo-European root meaning to flow. Snot is a widespread term but, because of its distasteful context, is considered a vulgarism.
Wipe the snot off your face and cheer up.
2.
an obnoxious person, usually a young or diminutive and self-important individual
That little snot.
