To laugh

NB. This word is found only in certain British boy's comics, namely the Dandy and the Beano. It is extremely rare to use it in normal speech, unless inviting laughter.

Webster defines this as a combination of the words chuckle and snort. This would apply especially to the action of smoking ganja and trying not to cough.

This term was frequently used in the Colorado high country by powder skiing hedonists late in the last millennium.
