Senoufou BS: the word 'biff' (40) RE: Folklore: the word 'biff' 27 Sep 20

Your lovely quote keberoxu made me think of my mother. She was from Cork, and spoke exactly like that! And 'biff' is used here in England quite normally. I didn't realise it's a bit outdated. We say, "Biff! Bam!" to describe a smack or a hit. I wouldn't say it's childish, as all the adults I know would use it.
Which thread is discussing it please? I'd like to read the comments.
