    hauf and snake has two distinct meanings in the lowlands dialect:

    1. a variant of "haufin' snake" (sample usage - "When that young feyboy Billy Elliott was out there prancing around in them tights o' his, sure there was a line of wee lassies strainin' their necks just to get a glimpse of his haufin' snake").

    2. a variant spelling of "hoff and sneak", meaning to scoff and run, or leave an eating establishment without paying the bill.
