A further bastardisation of the word buddy or bud. The welsh pronounciation the word bud delivers such abruptness on the D it is magically transformed into a letter never heard before by man. It is so mysterious that all one can hear after the clear "uh" sound of the word is silence due to the incapability of the non-welsh human mind to properly process such a sound. It's closest relative is the letter 'T'. The letter 'T' is therefore acceptably substituted until the rest of the human race is at such a stage that they may understand and therefore develop a symbol for such a letter.
