If I had the arse of a crow
I'd fly over Sluff Town tomorrow
and shit on the bastards below" (football song)
"If you jump off at Maidenhead you can get the train to Sluff."
Use especially in the West Country, where it is pronounced hilariously as 'lurrrrrsh'.
"I thought you said tha' bint o'er there's well lurrrsh. She fucking mings to hell and back!"

It's a reference to the initials, CPGB, which kinda rhymes with heebee jeebies.

Comes from the German word for 'dumb' (incapable of speaking), though it is spelt 'stum' in German. Spelling in English somewhat ambiguous.
"Keep stum or I'll chop your facking balls off sunshine!"
