Well, quite so, but I always assumed that line was `men chunder'. Women
`glow' because they are far too refeened to *sweat* (or maybe it's their
gorgeous sunburn, I can't be sure). Men `chunder' (i.e. throw up, hurl
their bickies [i.e. their biscuits], yodel to the porcelain telephone, etc)
because they drink so much beer. Thus, the mythology.

I'm certain Emlyn could do a better job of explaining this, the pisspot.
