Chuffed

Posted by ESC on November 21, 2000

A news account stated that George, Paul and Ringo are "chuffed" about the success of a new Beatles CD. Anyone know the meaning and/or origin of "chuffed"? Here in the States, chuffy is an outdated term that means chubby or plump. I am assuming that the guys haven't put on weight in all the excitement.
