In parts of Brooklyn and Deep East Texas, a merkin is a unit of measurement in between a smidge and a schmear.

In military terms, most especially the Navy, merkin is pubic hair left behind on either a toilet seat, or the rim of a men's urinal. More closely associated to women's restrooms than to men's, but applies to both.

A source of great consternation for those assigned the task of 'cleaning the head(restroom)'.
