Meaning of ginge minge

ginge minge means: Self explanatory and was used to refer to people presumed to have ginger coloured pubic hair. The person responsible for this 'crime' was thus referred to as a 'GINGER MINGER'. More interestingly, the phrase survived the trip from Primary to Secondary education, although with a few notable changes. The pronunciation altered so that the phrase was pronounced with French vowels: "gonge monge". Furthermore at Bishop Vesey's Grammar School, the contributor can remember that the phrase was also used to refer to a particular sort of ginger cake available at school dinners. They had a red haired hard of hearing dinner lady in charge of cakes, and so much pleasure was derived by asking for this cake by its nickname. Asking the woman: "Can I have a slice of ginge minge please?" was a phrase so loaded with meaning that at the time it seemed the schoolboy equivalent of Shakespeare.
