Doug E.

Doug E.
 adj.— «Five years ago, he heard the word “duggy” (rhymes with buggy), used to describe someone who was very cool and well-dressed. He told the boy using the word he had never heard it. “That’s because you’re not from the West Side,” the boy told him. This year the word came up again, spelled “Doug E,” defined as someone who is very clean and crisp, but this time no one could pin it down geographically.» —“Study of slang a study of language” by Delia O’Hara Chicago Sun-Times Feb. 15, 2005.
