Etymology 2Edit

NounEdit

mimsy (plural mimsies)

  1. (vulgar, slang) The vagina.
    • It seems plastic surgery for men is catching up in the lunacy stakes with the world of female plastic surgery, a place where you can fly to LA and get the shape of your vagina changed: what constitutes an appealingly shaped mimsy is something else to be filed under "unanswered questions", next to the one about who wants a huge pair of balls. — Alexis Petridis. "Nut Jobs?", The Guardian, 2008-08-30.
