Came up with th’ correct word for me mate
Podger’s skill set, real name’s Podge by the
way – and if I may be so bold, a ‘porridge’
mixed-message mispronunciation of – wait
for it, pogitate – which he does effortlessly
while praising all nearest & dearest with an
uncanny compliment of manoeuvring them
where he wants with ingenuous panache

So his ‘podgerism’ is pogitated behaviour
let him try and deny it with a coyly tilted
head engaging sly eye contact, he knows
what works to the letter; when queried he
says ‘hardly mate, look, I’m just quietly
mindin’ me own business
