Anyone know where the word 'mug' originated, in this context? I know what it is to be a mug, but I don't understand how you can give it the name 'mug'.

I agree and think there should be restrictions on the amount of times one can say mug. [or expected].

On MTF, the status of the word "Mug" has escalated into that of the F-word. It is so versatile that it could be use as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction, gerund, pronoun and any other part of speech that makes up the everyday language. It's so universal that its use can't be restricted.

To be honest, at first I didn't know what the word mug means. I looked at the dictionary, and the first translation was: cup, a trophy... so I taught that it's something positive, like a champ, winer or something... :D If someone told me:"Hey, you mug! :D", I think I would probably honestly replay:"Oh, thank you!:hearts: You are a mug too!:hug:"

P.S. Is this an ordinary slang or it's being overused on MTF?

oh, yeah... MUG :nerner:

To be honest I agree with the thread starter :shrug:
The term mug was fun at first, but now all you hear is mug this and mugthat. I mean when the nr1,2,3 players are all called mugs, you know mug is overused. Plus all these mug avatars I see make me want to just take a mug and smash it. I swear I'm gonna bad rep everyone that writes the word "mug".

Maybe it's just because I'm not english and mug doesn't mean much to me apart from an actual mug. I guess the mug craze is gonna die down soon hopefully, I'll never have to hear or read about mugs

In yer mug, ya big lug.

Dear Word Detective: I'm wondering about all the various forms of the word "mug." It can mean a cup for beverages, the human face or "to rob," as well as "to make a face," and occurs in such phrases as "mug shot." Are these all the same word "mug," and if so, how are they related? -- Susan Davis, New York, NY

Yes, as unlikely as it may seem, all those senses of "mug" are indeed related. "Mug" is a very good example of how even our most basic words evolve and change their meaning, often in remarkable directions. The Oxford English Dictionary lists eight separate senses of "mug" as a noun and another seven senses as a verb, and all of them stem from the same root, a Scandinavian word meaning "drinking vessel."

If the mug we use for coffee came first, "mug" meaning "face" was the next stop, and the reason might surprise you. It was common in the 17th and 18th centuries to decorate drinking mugs with grotesque caricatures of human faces, and by the early 1700's "mug" had become a popular slang term for "face." On the lower rungs of society, "mug" also became a slang term for "guy" or "fellow," sometimes "a sucker" or "a fool," and a "mug's game" was a thankless task. Once cameras came along, "mugging," or making a distorted face, became a favorite pastime of children of all ages.

"Mug" took a turn for the worse with the advent of another sort of "mugging," originally meaning to rob by punching or striking the victim in the face. Fortunately, thugs who "mugged" often ended up with pictures of their faces ("mug shots") in a "mug book" at the local police station
