Assunto:  Huff-n-puff to Dale
 
Mensagem:  Reading the lyrics posted by Marcio, I had another thought:

* to huff = (slang) to inhale the fumes of a volatile chemical (for example, marijuana) as a means of becoming intoxicated
* to puff = to smoke / to blow in puffs
* funk = (slang) high-quality marijuana
* stuff = (could mean anything...)

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language
Urban Dictionary

Does that make the sentence more clear? ;)
