dare-OH-G-ANE Noun; Adj.
A rare type of fish (very often deep-fried) found in the coastal waters surrounding the island of Australia. The word is derived from the medieval fish, Derodin, which was considered a predator of ancient waters.
Commonly used as a compliment with the implications of being as sly, cunning and wholly awesome as the originators Derek Basedow and Morgane Siddhartha were, for their skill in out-smarting the roaming creature.
"Damn, that Gavin thinks he's the shit, but he doesnt realize that Hunter's got him beat in the game of derogane."
"Kelly thinks shes so cool throwing beer at people, but obviously Mogantly is so much more derogane than her since Kelly doesn't realize no one likes her."
