Mung is a supposedly a term used to describe the foulest of necrophilic acts. It can mean many nasty things a person can do to a corpse in the name of love, but the most common definition seems to be imbibing the bodily fluids from the genital orifice of a very ripe female. This is usually done with the help a of a friend pushing down on said corpse to get all the 'mung' juice out.

Huh. And I'd only heard it referred to as a slang term for female genital secretions of living people. That I believe is the most common definition.

And the description you have written sounds unlikely to happen very commonly. Besides being dangerous, and wrong, it sounds like something more talked about than practiced.

As far as the most common definition for sane people its a hacker term I think.

Well, I have grave doubts about my sanity, but I don't hang in necro circles, and I knew of the term in the connotation I mentioned long before there were hackers (unless you were talking the original computer geeks at Big Blue, NASA, etc.)

I never get these boards. No matter WHAT you post turns into a rousing game of "I'm L33ter than thou!" As somebody launches into a jihadal tirade to discredit everything you say. Everything is under the magnifying glass and if you mention one thing thats factual basis is off kilter you get tossed into the 'rubes' pile. In other words, who really cares what it really means?! I was just bringing up one of the things it COULD mean.

Well, I don't think that any offense was meant... people were just bringing up where they had heard the term before.

I thought "mung" was just a Wayne's World term for something completely disgusting...

See, I learned something.

It all seemed pretty on topic to me. Unless someone knows of a case of it happening, this is about the only can of info you can expect. And myself, I'm hoping nobody does know of a case of this happening.

A jihadal tirade? Hmmmm, didn't think I had the energy to pull that off so early in the morning!

I meant no offense by my post, I was merely pointing out what I believe is one of the better-known definitions of this term. You posted about sanity and hacker definitions, I updated saying the word had been around for some time, and that I am not 100% sane. No attack on you, joke on me...okay? I would no more claim I was "l33t" than I would claim I was Peggy Fleming.

As for your original question, again, I doubt it happens very often, if at all; if you could cite any cases other than people talking about it online, that would make me think it was more likely. I have recently read an interview with a woman who was a self-proclaimed necrophiliac (and she has served time in prison for her practices); personally I do not condone what she does as a corpse can't consent.

I hope this is helpful. - Stressa

For the sake of interest, here's what my trusty dictionary of slang says about 'mung':

mung n.1 [20C] a brief glance, a search.
mung n.2 [1980s+] (US Campus) filth or dirt of any kind [note computer jargon mung, to destroy maliciously, to ruin]
mung adj. [mid-late 19C] (US) untrue, false, usu. in journ. context. [SE/dial. mong, a mixture, a confusion.
mung v. [19C] (tramp) to beg.

Sense 2 seems to be the most closely related to the OP's definition. I would doubt the act is common enough in reality to warrant its own slang term among knowing practioners.

mung /muhng/ vt. [in 1960 at MIT, `Mash Until No Good'; sometime after that the derivation from the recursive acronym `Mung Until No Good' became standard; but see munge] 1. To make changes to a file, esp. large-scale and irrevocable changes. See BLT. 2. To destroy, usually accidentally, occasionally maliciously. The system only mungs things maliciously; this is a consequence of Finagle's Law. See scribble, mangle, trash, nuke. Reports from Usenet suggest that the pronunciation /muhnj/ is now usual in speech, but the spelling `mung' is still common in program comments (compare the widespread confusion over the proper spelling of kluge). 3. The kind of beans the sprouts of which are used in Chinese food. (That's their real name! Mung beans! Really!)
Like many early hacker terms, this one seems to have originated at TMRC; it was already in use there in 1958. Peter Samson (compiler of the original TMRC lexicon) thinks it may originally have been onomatopoeic for the sound of a relay spring (contact) being twanged. However, it is known that during the World Wars, `mung' was U.S. army slang for the ersatz creamed chipped beef better known as `SOS', and it seems quite likely that the word in fact goes back to Scots-dialect munge.

This is where I come up with something right? Something really clever...

Ah, so South Park only told half of the definition.

Ugh. I try not to judge other people's fetishes (as a practicing furry, macro/microphile, and maieusophile, it'd be hypocritical of me), but that...I simply cannot imagine how ANYBODY could get aroused by it.

None of those necrophiliac definitions for "squick", "mung", etc., represent the earliest use of the word. In fact, I question whether any of them are used by actual necrophiliacs--they all seem to come from rotten.com or South Park or other places like that.

TB Tabbie, what on earth is a "maieusophile"? I may be sorry I asked, but Google's never heard of it.

I'm sure I don't want to know, but what is the necrophiliac definition of "squick"?

In the BDSM community, it is frequently used to describe an area that is a limit or is ooky (for lack of a better term), as in, "Argh, needleplay is squicky for me." or "While I respect someones right to be an adult baby, for me it is a big squick."

And I'm already feeling squicky about the answer to my question - Stressa

People claim that the "real" meaning of "squick" is "to have intimate congress with a skull".

It seems far more likely to me that it's a portmanteau of "squeamish" and "ick", and it's generally used to mean "goes beyone my limit of tolerance for grossness or discomfort".

YOMANK!!! Oh jeez - my LJ and snopes lives collide. Whew. [fish]

I haven't seen rudebaby since the ill-fated presentation, but I'm sure my blood pressure will spike if I do see him again (I'm doing a presentation in June, so there's a good chance of it). Goes with the territory!

And now, back to the topic -Stressa

Hey Taylor, so your a furry? I watched a CSI that focused on Plushies and furries and didn't know if it was real or not. But after seeing "Cats" numerous times, well, I can see the attraction and I may be temped by one of them very easily. I wanted to google the term but it is kind of scary when it deals with fetishisms. Uh, Is that a word?
