Right you Americans, time for some education.
I am not going to go into the whole discrimination against the ‘u’ thing (humour, colour, favour etc) because try as I might, you Americans insist on treating the ‘u’ like a spurned lover. Tossing it aside, regarding it as superfluous.
Today’s lesson centers around the word ‘naff’.
Naff is a great word to use, I use it often. This is what it means:
Naff is wearing socks with your sandals.
Naff is your mom telling you to take a sweater with you when it’s cold outside, and you listening to her. And you are a man.
Naff is wearing lots of pink frilly things. If you were a man this would not be naff but rather queer / gay.
Naff is grown men still living with their mother.
Prince Charles is naff.
Naff is a guy who doesn’t like getting hands dirty to do chores.
And to be honest, I find new age sensitive men of the nineties naff. But that’s just me. Can’t stand all this naff getting in touch with your feminine side shit.
Naff is basically a mixture between nerdy and wanky.
You can be a naff or something can be naff.
I.e.: “Don’t be such a naff, jump in, it’s not that cold”, or “These childbirth classes are so naff with all this sharing and visualization shit”
Naff is never cool.
