An Australian slang term.
A dag is technically the matted wool on a sheeps tail, but in typical useage throughout Australia, it refers to people who don't have a neat, tidy or cultured appearance. It can also refer to a person who tends to be quite informal.
It is not necessarily a derogatory term in modern useage.
1. dirty wool around sheeps bum.
2. An unfashionable person.
2b) term of endearment for a unfashionable person that tells corny joke.
Whether it is a term or an insult depends on the context.
