The word “meff” originated in Liverpool and was originally used to describe someone who drank methylated spirits (meths). However, it now means something completely different that is difficult to put your finger on. It’s an insult but it’s not. It’s kind of like a dumb blonde. Everybody knows she is dumb but you can’t help loving her because of it – a meff is very similar. It can also mean someone who doesn’t quite fit in with everyone else, someone who always wears the wrong brand names, like constantly wearing Reebok Classics.
…again it is still difficult to find an exact definition.
I think the best I can do is suggest you think back to when you were in school. In every class there is always one kid who never talks to anyone or if he/she does, then it just doesn’t make sense. They never do anything the other kids do or want to take part in group activities. They never have nice things to eat in their lunch box – it is always healthy foods. If they forget their kit for PE then their mother brings it to the school at break time.
Get the picture?
That child is a meff!
