    I love shagbag. Did you coin that phrase or is that a common UK saying?

    I like it too, but I can’t claim authorship. That lies somewhere in slangland. Shag has at least two meanings, a type of pipe tobacco (both word and product rapidly going out of usage) and sex, especially of a rather perfunctory nature.
