Those words keep coming up when I'm talking in message boards and such. What do they mean anyway?
There's no American equivalent. You have to see a chav in person to get it.
TLQ - If you can get "Little Britain" on BBC America - the girl in the track suit going "yeah but no but yeah but no but yeah" with nine children at 19 and multiple court appearances is a chav.
It's established in the show she's no longer in school.
CHAV actually means Council Housed and Violent.
try this out www.chavscum.co.uk
there was a better one; a video diary of a chav...was something like fatpies or somethin......DO Not! try fatpie.com....haha already tried it,....its not my style personally lol...but feel free to try that one if u wish.
Chavs don't have to be schoolkids. You can't claim dole while still in school
the website did help. and we do sorta have them here in Canada. We call them ginos or ginas. they wear soccer jerseys, thick,tacky gold jewelery, whore hoop earrings for the ladies and tight ass pants. Ick, I can see why so many people despise them
I think im starting to understand chav-ism. Is Ali G From Da Ali G Show play a chav for one of his characters?
Chavs seem to be what the kids call them these days... I'm used to hearing them called Pikies.. (Pie-Keys)
RE: the website did help. and we do sorta have them here in Canada. We call them ginos or ginas.
No. As a Brit and a Canuck, I can say that the Gino is NOT a chav.
The Gino culture is similar in musical taste, but wholly different in execution. Imagine an urban trailer park dweller trying to be a rastafarian Eminem clone.
I think its a bit much labelling people in a council house a chav.. Bit stuck up that!!!
I don't do names.. In my world.. If I say chav.. its because I stole something (not that I steal) I just mean.. "oh I chaved this or that" just another word for steal to me
What a load of class prejudiced crap.
Chav comes from an old Romany word 'chavi' meaning child.
Sar, are you becoming me?
Oh give over.. Don't try and make out something of what I wrote.. I mearly said what the word means here.. No one calls people chavs here..
Chaving is basically slang for taking something.. Its been said forever!!
Don't twist stuff cheers
Yeah, that's just the attitude I'd expect from such a prejudiced classist ... you southerners are all the same
Up the revolution!
You wanna join my gang you southern pansy..
We have naked Thursdays
Yay for sixth-form politics! I'm gonna be an anarchist when I grow up
