What may I ask constitutes a minger? Is it a case of not meeting your own expectations or standards? Is one persons minger another persons delight? Please enlighten me on this. Can a male or female be a minger?

I love the Urban Dictionary definition of 'a male or female who fell out of the ugly tree at birth and hit every branch on the way down'.

The Minger is a mythical creature created by boozy hazes on a night out. You can be sat chatting up a beautiful member of the opposite sex all night and then the next morning your mates say " What were you thinking s/he was a Minger ?". That's not how you remember it they must just be winding you up. Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.

I'm heading home this weekend Mama and will be in company of many a minger. Care to join me? I can't promise a David Attenborough style lesson but perhaps a Palin-ish commentary?

I've never heard 'beauty is in the eye of the beerholder' before. Have a nod for that Blue. It is true though - you can drink a minger attractive.

I heard recently that the word "Mingers" is derived from when certain people used to call ginger people "Ginger Mingers", using a soft G.Then gradually it was shortened and mis-pronouced like most urban slang. Just a thought.

Might have to dispute that one elsie. Surely it comes from the word 'minging' which has been in use long before Jade Goody made it a household word on Big Brother. I heard its roots were in the British Army in a rhyme which goes something like "Your boots are minging, your plume's in shite, Your balls are swinging from left to right."

On a more in depth investigation it seems the "Minge" comes from an old gaelic scottish word "Menge" meaning excrement. In various forms it has been used to describe something smelly, ugly or otherwise unpleasant.

"Someone who was not just touched by the ugly stick at birth but was battered severely with it. Anyone who does not look better to you after several strong alcoholic drinks probably fits this category."

Oh dear, so do mingers have their own dating sites? Like meets like.
