    I walked right past it! I did not realise it was yours: someone was just painting "Shufti Cush" on the turret at the time. (I wonder if many people know what it means? LOL!)

    Cheers, Ade

    Arabic, 'Shufti' look, 'Kush' Lady bits? Look at her FUFU??

    We still use some Arabic slang in the military, brought back by the desert rats. Shufti Bint, stupid looking woman (I think this is derived from a derogatory comment about King Farouks wife, now applied to all stupid women) but its also said to have Indian origins. Shufti Scope, any device for looking through and 'Giz a Shufti' Let me look. Any others?

    For us in the Gulf, look is not 'Shufti', it's more like 'Choof' so I guess it's a matter of where the Arabic originates that is the question.
