Used as a term to describe when one has received less than they paid for. Most people do not realize it's a racist term that stems from nomadic 'gypsies' who are stereotyped as theiving criminals.

That's the ONLY reason I tuned in- was to see if she actually wore the dress. What was REALLY funny though is that my DH said, "well great, now I know who won" to which I replied, "since when did you start watching PR?"
He's always watching sports, ESPN, & Fox News - I didn't know that Bravo & PR were on his must see list

I wonder how many people only watched the Miss Universe competition to see if Miss USA wore the dress? And I read that the winner fainted because her dress was tight and heavy with beading, not chains.
