Landlocked Pirate: I seem to have lost my Field Guide to British Fauna. Could someone please explain the difference between yobs and chavs so that I might distinguish them in the wild?


These are yobs - also known as yobbos. Although originally a British phenomenon yobs are now more common in Australia, where they are also known as bogans.

And these are chavs - they have largely supplanted yobs in Britain. You could say that they are sensitive new age yobbos.

I don't get it..What is the point of getting stinking drunk to the point your falling down and throwing up?
Maybe it's just me, but I don't see where the "fun" part of that is..Not to mention feeling awful the
next day. And potentially being in jail or a hospital.

As best as I've been appraised of the situation: yobs are from the country, and chavs are inner city born and raised.

FunkOut: Bob_Laublaw: Gravity seems to be a lot stronger in the UK.

Actually, gravity really is weaker in North America than in Europe.


The hell you say.
