Pile mine high and make sure it doesn't jiggle

I'm watching Dismissed on MTV, a show that makes me feel about 100 years old because I inevitably find myself muttering under my breath and my words go somewhere along the lines of what is the world coming to with kids today acting like autistic retards and proudly displaying their stultifying antics for the whole world to see, is there no shame left?, when I witness the following exchange between two just such youths on my screen:

Gum-Chewing Blonde to White Boy in Ghetto Gear: doncha bullshit me about what kindda personality a girl gotta have, cause I know you guys just look for tits an' an ass, yo.

White Boy in Ghetto Gear to Gum-Chewing Blonde: chill, chill, I ain't sayin' dat... a honey's gotta have 'em hooters and pack some junk in her trunk, but gimme some brain too, yo.

And I'm thinking: Junk in her trunk? As in ass, butt, bum, derriere, lower back (if you will)? JUNK IN HER TRUNK? Is this guy for real? I know some people would beg to differ, but sometimes you've just got to love MTV for its sheer educational value.

    Junk in her trunk? Excellent :) Maybe we'll see a resurgence of Cockney-style rhyming slang. Not that I don't despise the MTV-style street language, but at the same time I think that something tha encourages people to be expressive, to enjoy tinkering with their words, coining rhymes and so forth, cannot be entirely bad. I would not be surprised if it turned out that there is more genuineness, expressivity, immediacy, and creativity in this kind of bastardized street slang than in the polite conversation of middle-aged office drones, various suburbanites and other mediocrities of that ilk.

    "junk in the trunk" is an expression older than the dingleberries in the plumber's crack.

    Where you been hidin' at, girl?
