YUNK, v.2 In phr. yunk-the-cuddie, a boy's game of the leap-frog variety (see quot.).Fif. 1957:
Yunk-the-cuddie. One team bends down and links in a chain. The first boy of the other team then jumps on to them from the back, landing as far forward as possible, and his mates do the same thing behind him. Once there, they simply try to stay put as long as possible, while the chain heaves about and tries to knock them off.
