    "I thought it wuz chuz" lol

    When I was in the Marines, I studied a lot of other peoples accents and speech patterns. (Not much else to do sometimes) Anyway, I thought that I had no recognizable accent at all until one day a guy point it out to me that I use "sumpum like that" (not sure how to spell it). Since then, I try to avoid it and I've become aware of a lot of other regional dialects.

    (as if I don't have more important things to dwell on)

    I figured it was a play on "thug life", but I didn't really think about it.

    I always thought it was Chuz, with the "ugh" u sound.

    Until you informed me, I had no idea.

    So, I voted for the last option.
