For those of you who have not been educated in the way of the slang word, today is your lucky day. Because today you are going to learn about one of the greatest urban expressions of our time : “MUFFIN TOP”
Let me explain. You know the way muffins bake and hang over the top of the container? Like this..
Your basic muffin
Ja, that’s the one.
Now, you know when people wear shorts or pants or skirts which are slightly too tight for them, causing their flesh to hang/bulge out, over the waistline?
That, my friends, is what we call “Muffin Top.”
How incredibly awesome is that phrase? Let’s take a look..
An excellent example of “Muffin Top”
This little jargon gem is spreading fast around Cape Town and it was my pleasure educating you as to it’s use and meaning.
It’s actually recognised as one of the best slang phrases ever.
This, according to Wikipedia:
“Muffin-top” is a generally pejorative slang term used to describe the phenomenon of overhanging flesh when it spills over the waistline of pants or skirt in a manner that resembles the top of a muffin spilling over its paper casing. This generally occurs when an individual wears low-rise, hip-hugger pants, or midriff-baring tops that are too small.
Origin: Muffin-top originated as Australian slang in mid-2003, but has since become popular in other English-speaking countries. It may have been first popularized by the Australian television show Kath & Kim. Australia’s Macquarie Dictionary named “muffin-top” the word of the year in 2006; the American Dialect Society named it one of the “most creative” new terms that same year.
Now you’ll know what it means when someone says, “She looks pretty good, but I’m only going to call it when she gets a little closer. I’ve got a feeling she might have a bit too much “Muffin Top” going on..”
Or, better yet, use it yourself and increase your coolness by at LEAST 15%.
Now that you know what the term means, I insist that you watch the Lifesavers commercial which could very well cause you to piss yourself.
