Re: “Let Us Now Praise Famous Jagoffs

So, perhaps our regional word "jagoff" has sub-regional usage. Growing up in Nor-side in the 70s we used it as kids as an insult, but it never had any sexual implication. It wasn't a dirty word or taboo. A jagoff was usually a jerk. You're jagging me is you're kidding me. I never heard that jack-off = jagoff until well into my teens in the 80s. I just assumed it evolved to a broader meaning.
