I'm afraid I didn't get the joke in this one:

Hanky, Panky and Huke grew into anonymity as time went by.

"And you know what? That kid is especially huke when he's standing up to bullies," she said as she popped a delicious acarine-flavored Jellybelly into her mouth and thought about Harry Potter.

We have huke up our definitions, now we may be judged.

Having picked me, Marcus wasn't really a candidate to win anyway, so his prolificacy is noted but insufficiently glandular to register a mention for each entry.

Oh yeah, reality states that a huke is an outer garment worn in the middle ages. I got it from one of the links in The Phrontistery, but it turns out to have been in thefreedictionary all along: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Huke

Take it away Hukkukari!
