My family always said "up-chuck" for vomit, so I put "chuck" and accidentally answered a different question. lol

Maybe he was trying to do semi-rhyming for "hurl"? (It doesn't really work for me either.)

I do believe Spike is a valid name for a drink laced with drugs. And don't tell me Spike isn't a real name because if you do, the late Spike Milligan (sp?) will be turning in his grave.

Spike is the verb, not the drink.

Still should work. It's so obvious, that MLP did a joke about spiking drinks with alcohol cuz of a character named Spike.

What about Jay for the dope answer. It' the first thing I thought of.

In Australia at least I've only heard Jay referring to a joint, not marijuana itself. I tried Bud though, that's a name isn't it?

A German soldier could also be Fritz, couldn't it?

In French, we say Fritz, but I don't know if it exists in English.

Yes, Fritz is used in English for a WW1 German soldier/s. At least I'm familiar with it having that meaning. I wasn't there at the time.

I have never heard anyone say Earl when they mean Hurl. Also, Benjamin for $100. I have never heard. Sawbuck for $10 or Fin for $5, but Ben for $100? If someone asked me for a Ben I'd probably hand him a ballpoint.

I think German soldiers have also been called "Fritz". And you should accept Herb for marijuana.

Yes, in Europe they were called Fritz. And not only soldiers !

Herb is one that works in Europe but not in America, due to differing pronunciations. In America, the H in Herb is pronounced in the name, but is silent when referring to a plant. Still, it make sense as an acceptable type-in since it works in British English.

I think a Cockney saying 'url for hurl is obviously short pronunciation for what they know is hurl. Other than that, anyone who thinks it's Earl is just confused about the word they're hearing.

Are you sure you don't mean "hurl" for "Earl"? I think you're confused because some people don't pronounce the h.

The next time you update, you could add Nick for "to steal". British, but they need more respect. :-)

Never heard of Earl for vomit. Chuck makes more sense.

Shamus for detective is accurate as well.

A detective is also called a Shamus, which could be derived from Seamus (James).
