This sentence is from Nigel Latta's "Politically incorrect guide to teenagers":

"In fact in his words he got a 'solid booffing' from the cops."

He's speaking about a guy who crashed the stolen car and then got arrested.
I can't find what 'booffing' means. Help?

  • There's no single word about kayaking in this book.
    Later the author writes: "What did you think when they set the dog on you and then ran over and gave you a booffing?"
    I suspect that the police officers beat him or something like that?

    I know what "to boof" meant when I was in college, but it's rather vulgar and may or may not have any application here. As it appears the author is from New Zealand, perhaps we should wait for someone familiar with the slang of that area.
