Growing up, my grandmother (a 1st gen Polish american) would often threaten us with the wraith of Stoddy Bush. She seemed to refer to him as a sort of Polish boogey man. When I got older and grew a beard, she always said i looked like Stoddy Bush. My question is who is this Stoddy Bush, and should i be offended that i looked like him. My grandma has since passed, and i can find no reference to any such name on the internet. I found a few references to Stoddy as a Americanization of the Polish word for "old". Was Stoddy just some old Polak with a big brada?
busz = the bush (area of thick vegetation in Africa or Australia)
Busz is a funny way of describing a thick untrimmed hair that grows without any maintenance. One can have busz on face, chest, back and in other areas :)
I don't know what stoddy is
We say: gęsty busz (gensty bush) - g in Grace = thick bush
(copy and paste gęsty busz into: ivona.com/us/ and choose Polish to hear it)
czarny bush = charny bush or any other hair colour - siwy =grey, rudy = red
