Raggytash BS: the word 'biff' (40) RE: Folklore: the word 'biff' 27 Sep 20


Keberoux,

It the context of the thread you were referring too "biffing" meant the slaughter of young men from another country.

In Boys comics it may be deemed acceptable.

It the context of war it is not, I would consider, a good term to use.

In fact I would consider it gratuitous.
