The Official Definitions of Chud

The following are all definitions of the word chud as given by me, or other people who actually care.

The Original definition

* CHUD: a word which is totally undefined except for the guideline that must always have a negative connotation; this makes it a formidable verbal tool.

Dear Spencer,

We at the Centre for Russian and East European Studies at Goteborg 
University have read your webpage about official definitions of CHUD 
and feel obliged to inform you about a fourth definition of the 
term.  CHUD has historically been used by the Finnish population as a 
name for the heathen Estonian tribes approximately a thousand years 
ago. We believe that the word was used in a very negative way about 
the heathen Estonian tribes, and therefore continues to always have 
a negative connotation.

Yours sincerely,

Patrik and Rikard

Well I know of 1 Chud.  That is Dr. Chud who is the drummer for the
MisFiTs. (a very cool punk band)  I have no idea how he got that name,
but maybe we should try to E-mail him.  I think chud is just a word that
can mean anything.  You know how the smurfs use the word "smurf" for a
lot of things?  Like "have a smurfy day."  and "I went smurfing today in
the woods."  Well maybe chud is like that.  You could say "Have a chud
day."  or something....anyways.  Later.

The Center for Housing and Urban Development (CHUD) is an
outreach/research center of Texas A&M University as well as the others.
I personally thought it was ONLY a canabalistic humanoid underground
dweller.  Wow, the things you learn on the web.

Subject: Chud The true Definition

Where I'm from Chud is part of the Boarder lingo. A Chud is a person
who is wasted bad. It is a very commonly used word in Southcentral
Alaska. Also people who rage frequently are known as Chuds and houses
that are partied in are called Chud Sheds.


I guess Southcentral Alaska's a pretty tough place, what with all the Chuds and all.. Just kiddin', Zed. Cool to get mail from Alaska though.

* CHUD: This one has to be mentioned.

On The Tom Green Show, a once local cable show in Ottawa, Tom went "In Search of The C.H.U.D." Now, he was talking about the movie (which I am specifically not doing), but since it's essentially the funniest TV show ever produced and basically my favorite, it definately shocked the hell out of me. Thank god I have two tapes full of "The Best of Tom Green" from this summer's workterm. By the way, TG is coming to the Comedy Network in January, Canada-wide!

* CHUD: It's even in Stephen King novels.

Subject: CHUD-- another meaning (sorta)

      In the novel IT by Stephen King there is something called "The
Ritual of Chüd", a ritual in which two people stick their tongues in
eachother's mouths, bite down, and tell stupid jokes until one of them
can't take it anymore.
      Those arent the exact words used in the book, but its close.   I
dont have time to flip through 1100+ pages to find the exact meaning.
Hope you and your readers enjoy this little tidbit of info.

He also had a little bit of spam at the end of the message, and I'm not entirely sure why :).

Hello, my name is Chud and everyone here thinks that I am a ginger
tosser....therefore, I propose this as a new definition of the word "chud"

Dr Chud

I thought I was pretty familiar with British English, but now I'm just confused. Ginger tosser? I can guess, but I'm not sure I like my guesses :).

      Dear Mr. Chudologist,

      When I attended UCLA my buddies and I used to refer to Keystone
scarfing, date raping, 50 I.Q., magilla gorilla type frat boys as chuds.  The
really obnoxious ones recieved surnames such as Chudster Mc Pudwicks or Bumble
Mc Chudfucks.  As you could see, they were people we really admired since they
often used to like to get into brawls with long haired hippie type stoners
such as ourselves!!

Subject: another chud definition for you...

Hey there, I was completely amazed to find your web page!  I didn't think
there was anyone else in the world that used chud in everyday language.

Well, my friends and I use chud in a lot of different ways.  The most
common is in place of fart - usually a really bad fart.  It's used as
follows:  awww man, jason cracked a chud....  or look at that guy's face!
it looks like he just caught a whiff of the chud jason cracked a second
ago... hehe...


* CHUD: Years later :)

Here in England the chud is the slang term for the area between the
ballsack and the asshole. How's that for a retort!

Definition of Chud.

Wow! other people use this word... glee.  In high school, my girl gang
and I referred to any mildly stupid male as a "chud".  This particularly
included boys or men prone to making thoughtless comments, or spending a
lot of time watching sports.  A good looking male of this type was a
"Chud muffin".


* CHUD: Over 11 years and still going!

Subject: Chud References

I recently watched the movie, Donnie Darko. A character in the movie calls
another character in the movie a 'Chud.' One of my daughters children's books
also has a teacher called Mrs. Chud. This was too much.

Both references made me remember the 1984 movie CHUD. (Cannibalistic Humanoid
Underground Dwellers)--referenced previously.

My boredom led me to this page and all these definitions cracked me up.
Thanks everyone.

If you would like to add a definition, you can mail it to me, and I'll take a look :) Wow, won't you feel special then.
