Ush is a word used in in a quote by Penelope Skinner. Penelope has remarked many times in interviews and on chatshows that "A man is not a man unless he knows how to ush de ush."
Exactly what this means no one is quite sure, but given Penelope's current popularity it's not hard to see why the word "ush" has become quite popular.
Most people use the word in a derogatory context- notable are the sayings-
"You aint got de (the) ush"
"This establishment is suffering from a severe lack of Ush."
Phonetics and Controversy
It is worthy of noting that in Penelope's original statement her pronounciation of "ush" is different both times in the phrase "ush de ush"
The first sounding like "Oosh" and the second like "Uh-sh"
Many people who use the word "Ush" don't bother with being confused by this, but instead make a quick choice and pronounce the word however they wish. This has lead to criticism from renowned Linguists and a general dislike of the word amongst those who are not fans of Penelope Skinner.
In a recent poll of 15 to 35 year olds it was shown that 56 percent of the people questioned were infact users of the "Ush" word in some form or other. It is still debated whether the word has any place in modern society, as the controversial philosopher, Arnold Levoss, puts it- "Does "Ush" have any true meaning at all given the state of our current understanding of conciousness as a sentimental construct of inverted logic?"
