This edition of American Slang was published in 1987. I was alive for most of the eighties. Granted that it was pretty unlikely for me to encounter slang like "sweet papa" or "sweat hog" on the playground, but I have never encountered any of these terms before. Have you?
Most of these terms are disgustingly derogatory, and I don't plan on using them. But, I have to admit that "double bagger" is pretty amusing.
Yo' mama is a double bagger. She's so ugly that she has to wear a paper bag on her head. Then, for safe measure, I have to put a bag over my head to block out all that ugliness.
