(the ruh and fuh elements are pronounced just like the duh element... and
that element sounds like the word that the kids use these days when an adult
says something obvious... i.e., Rachel (my daughters name), your room needs
to be cleaned- it looks like a sty... to which she replies "well duh... im 13".

(actually she wouldnt say that-- im just trying to provide an example-
please dont tell her I mentioned her onlist; she would be furious... DUH! )
