Today’s question is: Why would someone wear a pidge?
Background: First off, if you don’t have a pidge or know what one looks like you can check it out here. It’s a small scarf really. My girlfriend forwarded a Daily Candy Everywhere email to me with the description and link this morning. I thought it was cute and interesting, while very expensive. I knit and I’m fairly certain I could knit one for less. However, I, most likely, wouldn’t be using Italian cashmere.
After I read the email, and about the pidge, I couldn’t get the name pidge out of my mind. It sounds sort of funny, don’t you think? P I D G E, pidge. Hmmmmm. Well I decided to find out what a pidge is exactly. Not an easy task. I finally found a definition in the urban dictionary. This is the slang dictionary. In my opinion, the only one that counts when naming a new item of clothing. Here’s why:
From Urban Dictionary
A somewhat misogynistic term to describe a woman who is generally dumb, acts immature and is on the whole lacks intelligence.
Don’t worry about what she said, she’s just a pidge.

Short for ‘pidgeon hole’
Used (probably not exclusively) throughout the university of Oxford, UK
eg “I’m going to check my pidge”
Also (less commonly) used as a verb ‘to pidge’, translates as “to check ones pidgeon hole”eg. “what are you doing?”"I’m pidging”

Reasonably tall, but slightly retarded football player (that’s European football, you know, real football). Plays right back for Edinburgh Shitty Colts at Shitehill, Edinburgh. He is shit. Will definitely be the next David Beckham, because he takes wonderful free kicks which he curls into the top corner. His talents include kicking the ball out for an opposition throw in, usually near his own goals. He plans to play for Scotland when he grows up. He will grow a moustache.
When in doubt, Pidge it out!!

Now, I bet the people over at 3fe didn’t even think of this, huh? Yikes!
EDITED TO ADD: after reading sc’s comment I absolutely feel it is necessary to add that if you take the example sentence in definition 1. ……“she’s just a pidge” and add “wearing a pidge”. You have “she’s just a pidge, wearing a pidge”, does it translate to she’s just a dumbass, wearing a scam?
