    Cool Dung medal

    Hi,

    In the following passage "Delta probably takes the dung medal for the worst food..." (CNN today)

    Does Dung medal mean something like the opposite of gold medal?

    Re: Dung medal

    Bye the way: That would mean that Delta has excellent food. It should be: "Dung medal for the best food"......

    No - it gets the Dung medal because its food is so bad.

    Re: Dung medal

    Dung is manure, filth.

    So no one would want a medal (an award) made of dung!

    A "dung medal" would be awarded to the worst of the entire group.
