Clunge noun meaning: person (male or female) with poor sense of geography, of very low intelligence who have tandancy to wear tracksuits in public. Clungers (plural) can usually be seen gathering in large numbers, often smoking and drinking in public in towns and cities accross the United Kingdom. Clungers use profanities at will thereby passing on this vernacular art to their numerous offspring at an early age, preparing them for a life of benefits, benefit scams and delinquency. Clungers also tend to stare frequently at passers by and uttering sentiments like 'Wot tha fack ahh yew lookin at?".

This thread is a testament to the huge influence on the film and television industry Clungers have had over the years. For example:

    You have rained on my parade... :(

    Forget that, I have changed the meaning. We have plenty of adjectives for the female anatomy and very few for the above.

    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    Nominate - Botley!

    Not only a suburb of Orxford, but also an expletive to be used when a gentleman friend spills an alcoholic beverage onto light coloured slacks (trousers) in the crotch area therefore giving the innocent appearance of p***ing one's self.

    Up here we just call it seepage. Quite common after 16 pints of heavy and a few whiskey chasers.
