Thank you to Randy and Fenton and the WOW Report for including my photo in the Report. Without raining on Randy’s parade, I too tried to steal a pillow from the Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast but had to make do with 18 free pens instead. By the way, I found the pillows so infused with cheap scent it made my whole bag smell like a French brothel, or should I say, what I think a French brothel could possibly smell like.
Furthermore and unfortunately, the WOW Report is confusing and not quite
correct on the usage and origins of the word “dag” in the Entirely New Word of the Day. A dag, or dags, traditionally refers to the dried fecal matter that collects in the long strands of wool surrounding a sheep’s rear end. I don’t know if you have seen many sheep where you boys are from but these small hard balls of matted wool and sheep fecal matter collect back there and attract lots of flies. Winter is traditionally a time when you see more dags than ever because the wool is longer and the sheep don’t get clipped as often. Know what I mean?
Now there are many derivatives of this word. For example, and as you
described, “daggy” is in common use, but to describe it as “uncool” is being kind. More importantly, when sheep run, especially in winter, these little hard
balls of wool and fecal matter tend to bounce up and down. For that reason.
when you need something quickly or you want someone to hurry up, the
expression “rattle your dags” is used. As in, “C’mon, rattle your dags.”
I hope this clears things up. I just hate the thought of any misunderstanding or dare I say it, inadequate intelligence coming from your great nation.
Best, Mark Lewis
