Fodgel is an adjective used to describe someone who is “fat; stout; plump”. The word was first recorded in 1724 and its etymology is unknown although it is a variant of fadge meaning a short, fat person.
While current dictionaries define the word purely from a weight point of view, A Dictionary of Lowland Scotch (1888) defines fodgel as someone who is a combination of being fat and good-natured.
