    Default "Puhleeze"?

    What does this word mean? I couldn't find it in a dictionary.

    It's just a playful spelling of an exaggerated "please".

    You could use it to say that you are really, really tired of something............. "Oh, puhleeze, don't tell me anything more about Michael Jackson's death, I am sooooo tired of it all."
