Are YOU a narg?

Oh God, these werewolf books just get funnier and funnier...

"But you know I wouldn't date someone who was naff, or a real narg just because he was rich."
"Naff? Narg? I had no idea you were bilingual."
"They're British words," Jessica said with an air of importance. "Robert taught them to me. Naff means uncool, and a narg is a nerd - like your friend Winston Egbert in Sweet Valley. In fact, most of your mates in Sweet Valley are nargs."


Can't. Stop. Laughing.

Okay, naff is a real expression, but narg? Where the hell did she get that? (If anyone can actually confirm this is some sort of slang term used in, like, one small English village or something, I apologise.)

Anyway. Comedy gold. There was another hilarious moment where a "punk" says to Luke "you'd better watch it, chap." The hell?

That is the funniest thing. I had no idea that Sweet Valley ever dabbled in the supernatural. God, I'm such a narg!

Yes. They were very entertaining. Don't think I ever got as far as the werewolf books though. Ooh! The Prom/Evil Twin series was fairly entertaining!

narg?? Was this a very regional English thing, or was I one when younger and just didn't know it? It certainly isn't anything I've ever heard.
