The origins of mudflap girl

Also good (the cover song, not the music video)…

The lyrics lend themselves so well to such varied interpretations.

Any way she could be called Mudflap Woman?

She must be Navajo? Speaking of which, here is the most iconic hogan I can think of: Hogan by the River, which is run by my inlaws.

(the word hogan – i.e. house – is pronounced hoe-gone, and not HO-gan like the Heroes variety).

This is interesting. I always thought the “mudflap girl” was a derivative of the “bomber girl” from WWII, with the medium limiting the detail of the subject matter.

In my redneck of the woods I have to look pick up trucks with giant testicles hanging from the hitch. There’s usually a sticker of our state which is shaped like a mitten holding a gun.

I thought the origin was ‘Lilli’, same as with Barbie. She was a cartoon, and then a doll that truckers had in their cab. It seems a small jump from there to the mudflap icon. But I dunno.

I guess.

All of these slang terms are usually obvious from their context.
