(Brian SD @ 07 Jan. 2005, 1:55) This thread made me go look up "Chav" online and found chavworld.co.uk (apparently where Drizzt got his definition from). Quite humorous. They listen to the Streets though...
I love the Streets. Some of the people they list I don't fully understand why. Then again, though as much as I think I know about Brit culture, I really don't know much besides the music. But anways, I just hope that everyone kind of gets it that I had no intent on being racist. I'll have to plead ignorance in this case, because when I was in prep school "dressing gino" meant litterally what I have stated many times above, and here in Montreal it certainly isn't used for Italians exclusively, at least amoung clubbers.
2. chav Chav :- Cheltenham Average More common than flys around shit, often wear burberry and are mistaken for intelligent life. Many of these sub-speiced humaniods gather around sertain locations about the towns and cities of Gloustershire, the most common of all locations is McDonalds. Easily spotted, look for fake gold, the ord Nike on clothing. Listen for the mispronouciation of childs words. e.g isn't it, this is spoken as innit, and Friend becomes mush, or bruv, though many of them say they could "fukin batter ya" most of them couldn't even batter a fish. To spot a chav, be it male or female, (there is very little difference between the two) look for hair that is shorter than freshly cut grass, the inability to grow over 5 ft and the lack of education. If approuched by one of these humaniod Twats, simply reply with a smart comment or use a big word, such as car, or bus, or floor, mostly they will become confused and walk off, in rare occasions the have been known to attempt to harm people to little effect. It is well known that chavs have little or no friends, just a "crew" of mockly idiotic fools with brand name clothes and there trousers tucked into there socks, also see pikey or townie Do not be fooled by there Humanoid looks, they are of another race, mainly scum For the greater good of the World, Legalise Chav hunting.

There was also a post on Chavworld... too good, read this: "yeah just a basic question are chavs pro american? most of the people i know are very anti-american, however the chavs at my college seem to be pro, and even *shudder* think an american accent would make them sound cooler? also do they think the sea cucumber (george bush) is a good president, and do they agree with the institution(ie the religious right) he stands for, and finally what are their own political views? all comments welcome, whether from a chav or not, especially if you are anti-bush/american also"
