That just reminded me of the scene in Thud! when Fred and Nobby are talking about the "girl's night out" and Fred, his usual malaproptic way, refers to it as "minge drinking." Quite possibly the filthiest things Pterry has even gotten away with in a DW book. :lol:

Terry puts a lot of stuff in the books that indicates to me that he knows exactly what it means. By the way, there is more than one meaning.

Of course he knows what it means ;) And every possible meaning is rude!

Not necessarily. Being mingy is just being cheap, so I would assume that minge drinking is cadging drinks from other people, or maybe sipping their drinks on the sly.
