Take a bucket half full of gasoline, and begin adding flour until the mixture attains a pancake-batter-like consistency. This is chud. It will stick to anything and, after burning, will leave a nice crispy pancake.

Can also mean chewing gum in English slang (notice I didn't say British; can't speak for the Irish, Scottish or Welsh). Used towards the North of the country; mentioning it in conversation with Cockneys and other Southerners will usually earn you a blank look.

Apparent in films "C.H.U.D." and "C.H.U.D. II: Bud The C.H.U.D.", the acronym was thought to mean Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers.

Chud (?), v. t. [Cf. Chew, Cud.]

To champ; to bite.

[Obs.]

A. Stafford.
