    Fagbag

    He had on brown lederhosen, a short-sleeved red shirt, and a Tyrolean hat, with a fagbag around his waist and a camera over his shoulder.

    Case Closed, Patrik Ourednik.

    I thought 'fagbag' was an offensive word for a male homosexual. Is it some kind of a bag, really?

    Re: Fagbag

    Fag is offensive. Bag is offensive. I don't think 'fagbag' is meant to be here - though as Rover suggested it would help if you said where you found it - it's new to me.

    'Bag' is offensive? Not in Aus. A bag is something you carry things in.

    "Old bag" is a fairly derogatory term for an older lady.

    My only guess for the meaning of a "fagbag" is that it's similar to a "bum bag" (BrE) or "fanny pack" (AmE). It is perhaps a small bag with enough space for a packet of cigarettes - "fag" is an informal term for a cigarette in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
