    Here: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=shucks
    Schucks (rhymes with trucks), in addition to the definition given at that site, is used with humorous intent, as here. It's as if the speaker is slightly embarrassed and saying that he doesn't really deserve the compliment.

    Dear RonBee,

    Thanks!
    I can find the word "shucks".


    So the word "schucks" is the same with "shucks"?

    Shucks! Why don't I know that? :D

    Yes. I should have spelled it without the c. (But dictionary.com didn't seem to mind.)

    :wink:

    Could anyone suggest a most common usage of "dis" ? Is it a proper word? I saw it somewhere used as a verb "dissed" but can't remember the content...

    It has several meanings. The one I've used is bashfulness.

    By the way, the proper spelling is shucks, without "c". I add the "c" to give the word a Yiddish spin: schmuck, schlep, schucks. :D

    "dis" is an abbreviation of the word "disrespect". It's considered slang (outdated, I believe). To dis someone or something is to disrespect her/him/it. Speakers conjugate it as follows:

    Present: dis
    Continuous: dissing
    Past: dissed
    Passive: been dissed

    :D
