It is, I think you've combined stingy with miserly and come up with a new one. Sorry Tamar ;)

Now there's a skill set it might be interesting to add to my CV :shifty: Image

I suspect "mingy" is one of those words that has local meanings. :D I knew a bloke from somewhere in Yorkshire who used the word "chuffing" in place of swear words. It didn't have the same impact somehow. :mrgreen:

In the military fraternity "minging" means filthy dirty - as in a piece of kit that was used in the field, and the user tries to hand it back into the stores 'unwashed' - to use Tony's example above would be met with - "That's chuffin minging" get it cleaned first !

There's a difference in pronunciation between "minge" [minj] and "ming" as in "minging" though. :lol:

When I joined the army we had two lads from different parts of the country (Crewe and Newport). One looking at a picture of a bare naked lady in a magazine, one pointed out a certain part of her anatomy and declared: "look at the m**** on her!". The other chap asked what a "m****" was and when it was indicated he replied: "Oh, you mean her Qu**?"

This is an example of regional words for the same item. The two chaps in question were thereafter nicknamed respectively: "M****" and "Qu**". :lol:




Thank you English language for adopting the use of asterisks to replace smutt! :clap:

Looks like another DW joke that I missed! I have no idea what minge means. Although, after reading this thread, I think I'm starting to get the idea. :?
