Somewhat outdated internet slang for penis
Origin: A 90s cartoon called "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" was well known and often mocked for being a kid-friendly, slapstick comedy series about the famous video game character Sonic the Hedgehog
. However, despite constant accusations that the show was aimed at five year olds, the show's writers did occasionally sneak in sexual humor, including jokes about breasts
This particular word stems from one of the most famous of these gags, where bumbling robots Scratch and Grounder
being discovered by Dr. Ivo Robotnik
while eavesdropping on a private conversation. Robotnik then says, "Snooping as usual, I see?" in a way that sounds remarkably like "Snoo penis usual, I see?" Because the syllables "Ping as" are used to make "Penis," YouTube Poop
creators begain to use them as a single word both to add dick jokes to their videos and to get by YouTube censors.
With the recent popularity of the similar Painis
, use of "Pingas" has began to drop.
