word origin: scum bag

The word 'scum bag' originally referred to a used condom.

Now, it seems to refer to the men I date.
Coincidence? I think not.

Another one I have to mull over and comment on later. Damn!

I love the coincidence here. Is the condom thing really true? If not, it still makes a great little tale. Have a good weekend.

P: I will just have to lean patience.

Egan: Yep, it's true. I think the term originates from around the 1920's or 30's

Looks like you need to find some new condom machines! My machine is located in Kansas!

Amazingly, that definition seems to fit so many people that I've used it on...

They had condoms in the 20s and 30s?

They obviously didn't use them. That's why there were families with 10 or 12 kids.
