    A "chav" is basically a complete scumbag. Stereotypically prone to violence, drink, drugs, boy racing, cheap gold jewellery and thievery. A chav would normally wear a shellsuit, and enjoy Burberry clothes.

    Chav.. I've heard of them before, apparently British people love to make fun of them... I think they're white kids who wear bling-bling and Burberry.. I guess... ?

    This is from urbandictionary.com...
    1. chav
    Picture this a young lad about 12 years of age and 4 ½ feet high baseball cap at ninety degrees in a imitation addidas tracksuit, with trouser legs tucked into his socks (of course, is definitely the height of fashion). This lad is strutting around, fag in one hand jewellery al over the over, outside McDonalds acting as if he is 8 foot tall and built like a rugby player, when some poor unsuspecting adult (about 17/18) walks round the corner wanting to go to mcdonalds for his dinner glances at the young lad, the young lad jumps up in complete disgust and says “Whats your problem? Wanna make sommin of it? Bling Bling” when the adult starts to walk towards the young lad, the young lad pisses himself and runs off to either his pregnant 14-year-old girlfriend or his brother in the army crying his eyes out.


    Sounds sorta like America's version, called a "wigga"

    Do they not use that in Florida? I've always known in to mean "strong or built" and I grew up on the West Coast (of the US) and thought it was Californian/North American slang...
