in reply to today's wwftd, a minion writes:
I actually have used a derivative of the word "pootle" (with the same meaning) for years: Pootley-fart.

so, I gather that, where most USns would simply 'fart around' to kill time, a surpassing variant might be to
'pootley-fart (around?)'.

I love it - pootley-fart.

It is as quaintly amusing as that wonderful term diddly-squat (which always sounds best in a southern accent)

And diddly-squat's second cousin, once removed, diddly-damn...
