Anyone who's ever watched the british TV show RED DWARF will know of the swearword smeg. After watching many episodes of this show ,I gotta know, what does smeg mean?

I think it is short for smegma.

–noun
a thick, cheeselike, sebaceous secretion that collects beneath the foreskin or around the clitoris.


Hey, you asked. Buggedout

I guess it's the technical name for dick cheese. TeddyR

I always assumed it was a made up word used to allow the characters to curse without really cursing (like the word frak is used on BSG).

The posted definition of the word has always been my understanding of it - ever since high school.  We would often insult each other using said word in a sentence.

One of the greatest insults ever, made all the more funny by the fact that it will ALWAYS remind me of Red Dwarf.

As an aside, there's a range of kitchen-ware branded Smeg... ewwww

I've been known to drop a 'Oh, smeg," when something doesn't go right. That or a "bloody buggering hell," which Rimmer exclaimed in the episode Cassandra when Lister walked in on him and Kochanski.

Yep, I originally thought that as well.  In fact, on that note I find myself occasionally using swear-words from Firefly and Farscape.  For some reason they had some really nice sounding insults and swear words, and because of my obsessive nature when it comes to those two sci-fi series, these words very much worked their way into my lexicon.

LOL

I feel you on Firefly.  Gorram and Shiny are both words I noticed myself starting to use after watching the show.

 BounceGiggle (concerning the meaning of smeg)

In Reggie Nadelson's book Comrade RockStar about Dean Reed, she decribes herself standing at the Denver Airport, waiting for a flight when the PA system starts to relate a few names.

The first name that comes up is "Dick Cheese, Mr Cheese."  TeddyR

I hope that was just an invention............................. Buggedout

I love how dictionary.com defines smegma as cheeselike.  How academic!  It should probably be pointed out that this cheeselike substance is made up of a combination of bodily fluids like semen, sweat, urine, etcetera.  And while no conversation about this topic will ever be sexy, it is a natural lubricant.  In men, circumcision works counter to this buildup because it exposes the sexual organ.

For a similar word/insult, Google "SANTORUM".

I think on one of the dvd's some of the cast are at a fanfest answering questions and a kid in the audience asks them what smeg means, cue Craig Charles trying to crawl off the stage laughing.
