What in God's holy name is egg-nog?

That's a rhetorical question, by the way—I know exactly what egg-nog is.

The dirty bastards
The dirty, dirty bastards!

Nog is one of those stupid made-up words you only ever get to hear at Christmas, like swaddling, manger, figgy and myrrh.

Someone is definitely taking the piss.

  1. No, it's not a silly made-up word. Meaninga bottle of old strong beer, it's been around since 1691. As egg-nog it's been used (mostly in the States) since 1891.

    It's also meant a peg of wood, etc., since 1571.

    Isn't that boring?.

  2. I tell you "nog" is the most important word in the world - you should be ashamed that you don't use it more often.

    Sorry - just playing Devil's Advocaat.
