The true meaning of scumbag

June 3, 2014

Did anyone else know that the word scumbag was originally a slang term for a condom? Neither did I. I discovered this interesting fact in Alan Connor’s entertaining book about crosswords, Two Girls, One on Each Knee (7). You’ll find my review of that book in this Sunday’s Independent on Sunday, by the way.
