Okay, I've garnered what this term means, and I think the depictions are hysterical, but what I don't know is where the word comes from? Is it short for something?

Isn't it time someone wrote The Chav Manifesto?

RJMan, nice to see you posting here.
I like Chavs. Edit: after reading the article, I can't say that I have not seen most (if not all) of this behaviour in England before. If the underclass is consuming more, it's probably because studies have shown that across Britian, there is markedly increased consumer spending on a scale that would make some Americans blush.

This is awesome. I have never heard of these people before, and yet I have seen them everywhere.

The nameless hordes now have a name.
