Do you know what the Truffle Shuffle is?


After writing the recent post The Truffle Shuffle and straw incident, I was made aware by a friend that her idea of a truffle shuffle was not what I was talking about at all! Now thinking back, I didn't do the best job at all at describing the incident.
On a recent night out,with the friend mentioned above, I re enacted the scene (yes I was drunk). I was trying to explain that I react badly if scary people approach me. Unfortunately my acting skills are not that good and my version of the truffle shuffle turned into erm naughty charade like gestures. But I thought she got it because she knew what scene I meant in the Goonies, regardless of my 'acting' skills. Alas no, she just thought I was trying to say that the 'truffle shuffle' guy was making obscene 'look what I got' gestures at me and no wonder I poked myself in the eye with a straw.

So did you know what I meant by the Truffle Shuffle?

  1. Truffle shuffle in my mind immediately conjured up the image of a wannabe ladies man coming toward you with his 'truffles' all hot and bothered, haha.

  2. I read that part for context, so got the gist of what you meant (oddly enough, there were no straws in my mind's rendering). It did not sound like an appealing way to be approached, in any case.

  3. I still don't know what a truffle shuffle is...LOL. I thought it was when you got the runs after eating a truffle. No?

  18. I had no idea (and still don't) what the truffle shuffle was. I thought it was just one of your crazy sayings again! (Ha!)

    PS: You know I love ya, but your comment thing drives me nuts - it takes me to 3 different pages before I can finally comment, and then I can't see the original post anymore.

  19. See, Claire, if the definition on the Urban Dictionary site is correct -- and I believe it even cites the film you mentioned -- then I know. Because (as I told you before) I always have to look up stuff in your posts.

    Well, not this one....

  21. @ Offended Shell, not to be mistaken for chelle :)
    I still cant believe you thought what you thought! Even after first hand charade like actions,pffft!

    @ Offended Chelle, dont worry it is not an evil clone, its a real non blogger type person! :)

    @ Kai you shall have to wait for the real charade version in September, hmm dont annoy me by mentioning technical blogging thingies! meh.

    @ Curmy I admire your willingness to learn :)

    @.45, No I did not, it was because of your rather rude/dirty comments that real non blogger person formed her own ideas about truffle shuffling and this led to another discussion about the incident and then this post.

  22. Erhm ... no, I didn't but I thought maybe truffle was another British slang for troll or something!
