Whats the deal with chavs?
« on: August 20, 2013, 09:58:46 pm »
I never get out, just sit in front of my monitor watching youtube videos when I should be coding... I've never been to England, and I was wondering whats up with chavs??? Do they just go around and harass people? What defines a chav? I'd love to go over there and see for myself. I'm always curious of other peoples 'lifestyles' I'd guess you say, and I always wonder what it's really like. I check news in other countries but I can never be sure if its watered down by the time I see it or something.

I think chav is synonymous to something like wigger or thug here. Don't quote me on it though.

*Edit* Dunno what context within which it was used but...

Going by a strict dictionary definition, a chav is
Quote
[...] usually a young person, whose way of dressing, speaking, and behaving is thought to show their lack of education and low social class
A good example of the chav stereotype is the character Devvo - look him up on YouTube.

As for the Clangers, this is what they are:



They've also been linked to the fake moon landing conspiracy.
