What does Bugga mean? I remember I saw the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral and Hugh Grant was saying Bugga numerous times while in a precarious predicament. I assume it's a "bad word". I saw you say it in the OEM 426 thread. Just wondering if there was an American translation.

Here is the full run down,

Bugger > ****
Bit of a bugger > That is real bad
Clever bugger > Smart person
Dozy bugger > Stupid person
Bugger off > Go away
Bugger me dead > Well dear me
Don't bugger about > Don't muck around
Silly buggers > Playing the fool
Bugger all > Nothing
Buggered > Exhausted
Go to buggery > Go away
Like buggery > An awful lot (eg: hurts like buggery)


Bugger, look at the time I need to get some work done, I have done bugger all today, to much buggerising around on this forum :)

Yip.. as Rod put it.. but us Kiwis invented it! :)
Toyota used it REALLY well in a Hulix add (Takoma in the USA?)

Anyway.. 'ahhh bugga..' = 'ahhh s.h.i.t'

Its part of the ENGLISH language.. something you yanks will never be able to speak! :D :D :D
