Etymology[edit | edit source]
The word 'Minge' is a slang term in the UK / Britain and the surrounding area and is used similarly to how Americans or Australians use 'Cunt'. The word probably saw use in Garry's Mod because the person who made it, Garry, lives in the UK and most likely had friends who lived in the UK who used this word often. Some people may say that the word was coined by Bob Good in his first days of minging. While this video uses the word minge, and was posted in 2010. While Bob Good was the first minge to become influential in HL2RP around 2014, he was also the first person recorded to have the term minge applied to him in HL2RP. Other minges and groups such as Madbluntz and Swishahouse came along since to wreck havoc upon the gamemode.
