To laugh

NB. This word is found only in certain British boy's comics, namely the Dandy and the Beano. It is extremely rare to use it in normal speech, unless inviting laughter.

Noun: Not quite pants, not quite shorts, only for men, only is beige.
Noun: The type of laughter that is silent then turns into a series of grunts.

This originated in Minneapolis, a group of kids wore the same set of shorts/pants everyday, and always made this kid laugh the same kind of way. Thus, his laugh matched the sound "Chortle" and "Chortle" acurately described the pant/shorts.
1. "Yo skinny man, you better put some sunblock on your lower calves if you plan on wearing those chortles."

2."Mutherfucker, don't chortle when I'm talking to you, this is serious."

Webster defines this as a combination of the words chuckle and snort. This would apply especially to the action of smoking ganja and trying not to cough.

This term was frequently used in the Colorado high country by powder skiing hedonists late in the last millennium.
