I kind of get it now. It is the northern pronunciation of buck, it makes no sense written this way because I would just pronounce buck with a stabdard southern accent. Think about the way a northerner pronounces bus, then take that u sound and say buck.

I pronounciate the word, as if the double 'o' just one. It is like 'buck', I guess. But English is not my mother tongue, so I made it wrong the whole time?
