Braughing?

What's Braughing?

How the hell did that get missed out of "The Meaning of Liff"?

Oh well, might as well take the chance to correct an omission :

Braughing (n) :

The act of gaining revenge on someone by deliberately over-stretching and distorting the interior headband of their trilby or fedora, so it falls over their ears at a crucial moment. Rumour has it that disgruntled wardrobe assistants developed this tactic in Hollywood in the 30s, where masters of the technique ('Braughers') would "braugh" a hat with such infinite subtlety that it would give way at exactly the wrong moment during the leading man's close-up.
