Tip: DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT on your first working day for the BBC, comment at an above average decibel, that a guy you've noticed walk past is a "spunk" in front of the PA of the Creative Director whom has just employed you.
And the true meaning, according to the Oxford Student's dictionary of Current English, is
Courage: a boy with plenty of spunk!.
Well we all know you men seem to have a constant supply of the stuff. Take that however you like.
