You'd be surprised just how much and how quickly wood moves about according to humidity which is why I always chuckle at posts banging on about the importance of set up to the nth degree.

I said chuckle, I meant laugh my bollocks off.
I've decided I don't like the word "chuckle".
Although there's nothing wrong with the word "moist".

I think the word "chuckle" is rather charming and gives one a sense of well-being. I am not prepared to discuss the other word as I have just eaten my porridge.

I quite like chortle and feel it is underused so will attempt to use it throughout the rest of the day.

?Chortle? is alright but lacks the relaxed ebullience of ?chuckle?. It exhibits elements of emotional repression and tends to be used by people who are inherently just a little bit moist.

chuckle verb (chuckled, chuckling) intrans to laugh quietly, especially in a half-suppressed private way.
noun an amused little laugh.
ETYMOLOGY: 17c: probably from chuck to cluck like a hen.


chortle verb (chortled, chortling) intrans to laugh joyfully.
noun a joyful laugh.
ETYMOLOGY: 19c: invented by Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking-glass, combining chuckle + snort.

By these reports your a bit supressed.
You need to take lessons from Brian Blessed and really let yourself go.

I've just tried combining a chucke and snort and have made a mess of my monitor.

The fact that "chortle" is associated with the paedophilic Lewis Carroll has meant it is now consigned to the rubbish bin along with others like "moist" and "annulus". Just imagine the concept of a "moist chortle". :shock: Revolting!!
