fanny pack Ha ha haa!

sold these in the US... the kind folks in the UK would ask me: what are these really for; the name does not fit the description thom; we see them being worn on the side of one's waist or the back side too...thanks for the laugh UK.
PS If you don't get it, remember in the US we park in a driveway and drive in a parkway.

In July, a full-length album, So Stylistic, featuring "Cameltoe".
Damn they know my tale.

Yeah, travelling aboard, one of the first american phrases I learned that meant something completely different was "fanny pack."

I can't get the video on the MTV site to work, so I have no idea what the music video looks like, though the lyrics sound like any other dance music meme: silly and addictive.

silly, addictive, and oh-so-classy!

oh. my. god. What a HORRIBLE song! Just abysmal! Awful. I will jump off the bridge if this becomes popular. Bloody awful. "Oh, un-huh, the girl don't know, she's got a cameltoe, uh-huh." WHAT???

Their music needed something that sounded "more Brooklyn."

I've been there, yo.

All we need is another Camel Toe crisis

FannyPack are the coolest dance music group to emerge from New York's largest borough since Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam shone from the streets of East Flatbush in the mid-1980s

*/loading shotgun*/

"More Brooklyn?"... yeesh. I'll take Interpol and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs as being Brooklyn, I think.

I am afraid to google the pharse 'camel toe'. . .could someone please provide a SFW explaination?

What does 'fanny pack' mean, alternative to something worn around the waist?

I am clueless here. . .

Scary indeed to see a definition of "cameltoe" in the NYT.

Let's see...safe for work...hmmm. Ok, think of a woman in really, really tight pants or shorts, so tight that they sort of bunch up....down there. You can basically make out the outline of what is underneath and it looks vaguely like a hoof on a camel.

Aussies told me that "fanny" doesn't refer to one's booty anywhere but in the USA. Apparently it is slang for vagina in the EU and AUS, so a fanny pack makes little sense to them (they call fanny packs "bum bags" over there).

Well, in British English, fanny means something NSFW. Akin to "hoo-hoo". (And don't you dare mix up your hoo-hoos and your ta-tas. That can only lead to sad confusion and Friday nights spent alone.)

Well... not necessarily SFW, but here are a few definitions of camel toe.

Mad props to xmutex for posting the link to Urban Dictionary earlier today. It's been cracking me up all afternoon long.

You'll all look back on the carefree, innocent days when "Cameltoe" ruled the charts when "Bukkake" by Creamy Pie is released in 2007.

I remember the "fanny packs" were "fag bags". don't know which is worse... I don't think I ever wore one properly but they made great things to store stuff in when biking, as you could just wrap the strap around your handlebars until it was snug. *sniff* where did my

and a cameltoe is a damned nasty thing, i usually see it on severely overweight women, who are probably wearing the same jean shorts they owned 6 years (and 60lbs) ago.

In Chicago we call it a "Moose-Knuckle". But then if you've been up in these parts, you'd understand the reasoning behind that.
posted by KevinSkomsvold at 2:11 PM on May 23, 2003


Why would anyone call them anything at all? Yuck, just ignore them!! Just the same as you ignore when a guy is a righty or a lefty depending on the day...
posted by aacheson at 2:21 PM on May 23, 2003


"Moose hoof" can also refer to the male version of the camel toe. You will know it when you see it.
posted by twos at 2:24 PM on May 23, 2003


OK, I haven't heard the song, but I imagine it is titillating? I wonder if the follow up to this wonder will be "Elephant Toe". (the same idea as a camel toe, but viewed from the back)

The Camel-Toe Report. Where the Underwear Meets the Elite...

FannyPack started as the brainchild of Goias and Fancy, two New York DJs with a passion to spin the music they love but who felt shackled by mainstream taste.

As illustrated by releasing a gimmicky hit dance single.

Never let the shackles of mainstream taste make you lose site of your musical vision.

Proof that culture can evolve without advancing.

I dunno. Just look at these pics. They just drip with edginess.

Looks like your average smoke break at a UPS distribution hub.

Looking for that "Camel Toe" look that drives men wild? Look no farther: Camel Toe Cup! Presumably NSFW.

The classic camel toe song was done by The Bob & Tom Show (2.8MB QuickTime clip).

See also "the definitive Camel Toe site".
posted by DakotaPaul at 3:42 PM on May 23, 2003


Oh yeah, probably NSFW.
posted by DakotaPaul at 3:45 PM on May 23, 2003


BTW, not that I'd ever do a NSFW search, being a married man and all, but a Google image search for the unsavory phrase might possibly lead to some illuminating results, for those of you who are still wondering..

Don't forget about Camel Toe Annie.

A song about it, huh? How very "years later".

you're so right, but obviously have some issues

Well, that's music for a different group of annoying poorly dressed poseurs with pretentious taste, but hey knock yourself out...

(NYT link:) The song is a cautionary tale, intended to help victims — help them, that is, by ridiculing them — into recovery.

If this works, Henri Bergson will finally be vindicated!
