Almost ten year ago now, when I started as a Freshman in high school (goll-eee), nuggeting was truly reaching it’s peak. For those of you who don’t know, Urban Dictionary describes “nuggeting” as a verb in which you “1. To turn someone’s backpack inside out without them becoming aware of the deed.”
That’s right, completely flip someones backpack, belongings and all, totally inside out, leaving them incredibly confused and equally pissed off to return to find it absolutely, yet perfectly mutilated. It’s ridiculous. For our visual learners, this high schooler put together a comprehensive guide of exactly what nuggeting is.
This was a trend before there were viral trends. You really had to trust who exactly you were leaving your backpack around, out of desperate fear of being “nuggeted.”
If your adult roommate still has a backpack, go ahead, nugget him. Do it for old time’s sake. The era has passed, but the sentiment is still there, and that’s all what really matters.
