Hello all,

I noticed that many British members are using the word "Chav" lately, Whitehatter for example posted the following picture in another thread:



Another member used the word "Chav" in a thread in the Aviation Polls & Preferences Forum:

Quoting Fbgdavidson:
I think VS does attract way more chavs than BA...I think it is the LGW South factor.

So what exactly is a "Chav"? I typed it in an English -> German translator but it had no result.

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

I'm sure many others can explain it in more detail, but it is generally an unemployed teenaged or early 20s scumbag wimp/wimpette who tries to intimidate and harrass decent folk, and walks around wearing Burberry plaid, playing loud obnoxius music, passing out and vomiting on lawns, and generally sucking the life out of society.

Feel free to embellish. I know, it sounds like I'm describing Kirkie to a "T", but even I wouldn't go that far with our kilted friend. Wink

Thanks for your replies guys, now I know what a chav is!

DIJKKIJK, the website is freaking hilarious, I didn't read everything until now but I already laughed my a$$ off a few times. Seems that these guys are not very welcome judging from quotes like the following:

They are a general waste of space and oxygen and I think they should all be boiled in acid, sealed in concrete and dumped in the sea.

So one hears - there were even rumours of paid (and legal) employment. He is writing a book about his experiences - "From Ned To Chav - The 12 Steps To Burberry Success". Of course it won't be a very LONG book, and will consist of mostly thumbprints and pencilled grafitti, but for Scotland, that's Literature !

This is the one where the publisher, for the first time in history, had to have the title ghost-written, isn't it? Understandable really. Kirkie's counting technique follows the "1, 2, 3, Many" school of thought, so someone obviously had to help him out there. Equally, there are two words with more than one syllable, and he wouldn't know about them. The story was that Penguin gave up right about the point they got into a long and fruitless explanation to him about what "syllable" meant, for the same reason.

Nevertheless, it did win the Book prize in Scotland (re-named from England due to a certain food distribution company having the same difficulty re: number of syllables) where it defeated "Och, Who Yooz Lookin' At?" (a sociological survey) and "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson, which was erroneously placed in the foreign language section due to the inability of the population to get past the third word of the title.

I believe this book was withdrawn from competition altogether following numerous complaints to the Scottish branch of Trading Standards, from irate readers who found that it wasn't "short" at all, but consisted of more than 100 words !! The complaint was upheld, and because the publishers refused to change the title to "A Fecken Loooonng Husturrah O' A Lotta Bawlocks" the book has been withdrawn from sale in Scotland.

Long research has led English etymologists to discover that the provenance of the Scottish word "binary" is entirely different to that recognised around most of the world. They found that there was no understanding of "binary" as we perceive it, but that it was in fact derived from the Scottish pubs. It appears that it came from three Scottish drinkers (identities sadly unknown, it could have been any of them) one of whom refused to pay his way. The other two protested about how he would "buy nary a drink, ya bastad", whereupon the phrase was corrupted to mean simply the other two who went over to the corner to play the longest game of darts the world has ever seen (501-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-etc). A nice confluence of two different concepts there I'm sure you will agree.

This is true; however, the decision to withdraw the book from sale has evoked howls of protest from the Scottish public, many of whom had never known the concept of toilet paper before some of the more enlightened members of the community found a use for said tome. Nevertheless, Health and Safety have now become involved, after the dreadful error made by one newspaper reviewer who called it "food for the brain". Nobody knows who told the Scots that this had been said, but rumour and a whispering campaign led at least one mobile takeaway to dip it in batter and deep fry it, with tragic results.

Which reminds of an old Scottish ethnological division of the human kind into three different subtypes: those who can count and those who can't.
