Infantryman of British army
"Where the Army goes the Pongoes"
My understanding was that a pongo was a naval term for any soldier (infantry or otherwise). Comment by: Phil Towend   
In the Royal Air Force Regiment (circa 1949) a "Pongo" was a slang term for an ex-Indian Army Officer - some of whom had transferred in to Regiment following the demise of the Indian Army. Comment by: John Gardner   
This originated as a nineteenth century Royal Navy jibe at the Army, derived from "where the Army goes, there the pong goes". The Army in the field lacked much in the way of bathing facilities for obvious reasons, so the jibe was probably justified much of the time. Comment by: Bruce Haithwaite   
I was reading a children's story about a pig and the farmer's daughter named him Pongo because are smelly. When the pig introduced himself to the other animals he said that he was Pongo by name but not by nature. I don't get it. Comment by: Melissa   
Pongo can also mean smelly, as in "Pingy pongoes" used in the "Confessions of Georgia Nicholson" novellas. Comment by: The Ghost of the English Language   
When I was growing up someone used to be called this by his dad, not sure why but it was a term of affection. Comment by: Jez A Bell

sylish in a rich white way, like the rich boys that go to "prep school"
Rich and white? Why does someone have to be rich and WHITE to be preppy? Comment by: Anonymous    Rated:1/5
yeah really why you have to be white and rich .. RACISIT!!! Comment by: non ur business   
I wonder if you'd be so offended if someone defined a 'homeboy' as a black urban youth-y'know, the prep definition just happens to be historically accurate,so just b/c a person describes something that certain people have generally not been a part of, but- it seems from your reply-you WISH they had been a part of, doesn't make them a racist. Take it easy, for Pete's sake. Comment by: Prep school grad   
well i certainly agree. i know lots of preppy people and they are all white. but it's a fact and it doesnt make me racist. most people do assume preppies do be white people. Comment by: Luna Halkett   
I didn't notice anyone really dealing with the class piece, and the preppy designation certainly relates to class. So if this is the case then there would be very few working class or poor European Americans fitting the stereotype. I guess I wonder what do Brits term as "Poor White Trash" or Rednecks? Comment by: JoAnne   
Get over it guys, it says in a rich white way! It doens't say that you need to be white to be rich. It's more of a private catholic school-gossip girl kinda word= Preppy. So get over the colour of your skin bitches, no one cares. It's your attitude what matters! (I'm not white btw). Comment by: R    Rated:5/5
