This is for the black members here - I am writing a KIDS' comic book and I have a character named Puffy- when you hear the name "Puffy" do you think of a cool person, or a buff-looking person:


http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=puffy&page=2

puffy


A person who's got large muscles, but isn't cut up. Thus, the person ends up lookin swollen all over. Not necessarily fat.

can be used as noun, adjective, profanity or nickname.
noun=an extremely cool person.

nickname=a nickname for someone that demonstrates puff-like qualities (i.e: coolness, awesomeness, enthusiam)


I asked some people and they think of Puff Daddy - Sean Combs.

Or do you think of a homosexual?

I am curious- please help me out with this.

@JGoldman10,
ok

do you understand how the ratings at urbandictionary.com work?

the definitions you've chosen have more down thumbs than up thumbs - that means that the majority of people disagree with the definition someone has submitted

look at definitions #1,2 and 3 - those are the ones that have more upratings than downratings - so people think that is what puffy means

# 1 - large nipples
# 2 - external vaginal lips
# 3- people who look like marshmallows

definitions past #3 have more people disagreeing with the definition than agreeing

definition #1 is the one most commonly agreed with

so puffy means giant nipples to the majority of people who look at urbandictionary.com


If you want a crime-fighting giant nipple, you've definitely given your character the right name.

@ehBeth,
You know ..sometimes..this place is far better than TV, even when TV is good. No one could make up this sort of comedy (and drama, too).

I believe the word you are searching for is poof.

@ossobuco,

I wonder if people would then see Poof Daddy?

Either way, I so wouldn't use the word Puff, in a kids cartoon book, I'd think of puff the magic dragon....

@ehBeth,
I don't care what a majority of people say - if a POSITIVE definition for ANY slang term is given I will use it.

I want to know what comes to mind when BLACK people hear it.

I am guessing that "majority" you are talking about is white, right?

I was being taunting, which I try not to do but sometimes fail.

@JGoldman10,
My dear, you are the one who brought urbandictionary.com into this.

Your own reference doesn't accept the use for puffy which you prefer.

Good luck to you in your future endeavours.

@JGoldman10,
I'm curious with all your participation here and other sites, when do you ever find the time to work on producing and marketing your comics? In fact, when do you sleep and when do you do your outside job (which clearly has to be part-time)? I'm guessing you don't cook for yourself...or else you'd burn the house down due to you ADD/ADHD.

Because at nighttime and/or daytime, based on your timestamps indicated here, there's a lot of time represented with these absurd comments - not to mention the other websites. Aren't you a bit distracted and unproductive?

Lastly, how do you expect to make any sort of living from a comic that has such a narrow niche -Christian comics for socially naive readers. Wow...just consider that the majority of people who draw regular mainstream comics probably aren't making much money either.

Just saying...

@ossobuco,
It's because there is a "comic" in JG that brings the comic out in us, which isn't taunting:)

JG you in my opinion, can't start a thread asking for one type only to reply, it's a Forum..

Thank those that are replying . Now you are being rude.....

@FOUND SOUL,
Poof's #1 definition in urban dictionary is homosexual, a word that makes Goldman see vermillion. That's a taunt, as he's raged about homosexuals endlessly, which is, of course, quite rude.

I know better than to taunt him as he is pretty programmed and it is arguably cruel. It's the bad osso showing up.

@ossobuco,
I admire your intelligence when you post Osso...

I take back the comment:)

In-deed, it is rude, as is asking for only black people to reply....

I admire you back, have been noticing your posts.
I'm not always understandable even to myself though.

@ossobuco,
No the word is "PUFFY", not "POOF".

You are getting the words confused.

I don't talk to witches.

Did you not see the caption, "This is for the black members here-..."?
