I thought I knew the etymology of this word, now I find I don't. I won't go into it because, even if the word isn't, the etymology I had been told certainly is offensive. Anyway, just checked in the online OED, and it concluded ulterior etym. unknown. A fine word for this context, then. You should make it your mascot ...
