Default The Term Debagged

Debagged.We all know the meaning of it. What is bagged all about? This article may not have where that word started. It certainly gives meaning to Bagged.

I had to deal with this with my boys' friends back in late 90's Early 2000's. God it was annoying. On day I walked in the house from work and seen the one kid there. I said "Danny what the hell are you doing wearing a denim dress ??" He said "Greg they're pants. They have 32" pipes."
I just thought "Good lord help us".

Those baggy jeans were terrible in the nineties. But then so were haircuts - curtains and undercuts come to mind.

I wore bell bottom pants and platform shoes with fairly long hair in the 70's I bought a pair of baggy pants but they were not very wide.

In Australia it's called "dacking". Dacks = pants. May or may not include underpants. The professional Rugby League players like to do it to the guy they tackle. Then he has to stand up, pull his pants up, and hand the ball over.

No wonder Mr. Humphries had that dream about "hurling [himself] into the scrum."

Oh, scrums were fun in the 70s and 80s, then they decided they were too rough for the poor little poppets and changed the rules a few times until it was really just for show. In its proper form it's a heaving, straining mass of grunting manhood striving to capture the little ball in the middle.

The guys in the middle of it all (one from each team) trying to get the ball with their feet are called "hookers".
