"That man who just got rear ended in the car accident does not look like a happy camper!"
The term Happy Camper originates from the quote, "Not a Happy Camper".
It has been in use for over 20 years.
It's origins are similar to that of the term "Touron" which is a cross between a tourist and a moron. These terms began and are currently widely used in the resort industry and National Park Service.
