Miscellaneously Uninspired

Okay, so just a quickie... it's been a dreadful week.

Can anybody:
  • define the word "chuff" or "chuffed"?
  • use it in a sentence.
  • explain why the above photo is the first to appear on a Google image search of the word?

And, entirely unrelated, enjoy this bit of Chicken Techno:

"I'm dead chuffed* to have been given the opportunity to comment on your marvellous blog". Sorry, I've no idea what that picture is about.

* i.e. "Made up", or simply "pleased".

Gadjo is right. "Chuffed" means "pleased as Punch". Interestingly enough, "chuff" means something quite different!

Ana said...

Gadj -- "Made up"? Like a story? Thank you for demonstrating its use. Perhaps the dog in the picture was right chuffed to come across the rotting corpse of the hippo?

GB -- I'm off to I can see I have much to learn.

Gadjo Dilo said...

No no no, "made up", in British slang, means very very pleased!

Ana said...

Damn it, Gadj! Now can you use THAT in a sentence? How's this? "Gadjo demonstrated the use of the word 'chuffed' and I was, like, entirely made up."

Sorry that you had a bad week Ana.

The boys have neglected to mention that a chuff can be a fanny.

I hope things have improved this week

Yep. Chuffed is delighted. Why that applies to a dead hippo ...
