A Knapp is named after Erik Knapp, the king of Knapps. Knapps are those assholes you see at Warped Tour with stretched ears, knee-cut-off skinny jeans, a crappy band t (like A Day to Remember or Vanna) and sometimes a flannel shirt. Knapps usually have a bad skater kid hair cut or some ugly fo-hawk. Their shoes are either worn-out converse or some skater shoes. Half the time they arent even skaters, or they used to be, or they still are and they never grew out of it like Tony Hawk. They usually end up looking like grown up skaters. They like to go to concerts to either mosh the shit out of themselves and end up looking like retards trying to two-step. Or they just stand at the back of the crowd because they're too big of pussies to make it to the front; they act like they are too cool for the band so they just stand there. They have a tendency to make fun of kids who like BMTH when the truth is, they used to love that band until everyone else started hating them.

Stretched Lobes are ear lobes stretched beyond the "normal" size of 18g. The incorrect term for the stretching process is "Gauging"; the jewelry are certain Gauges (For example, 2g is 1/4".) The origins of this process go back to tribes in Africa, Asia, and even some in early America.more...
Frequently asked questions about this are:
“Does it hurt?”
It really shouldn’t. If you stretch slowly and only one size at a time (waiting till it is healed) it shouldn’t be more than a slight discomfort for a few seconds.
“How big will I stretch before it won’t go back to normal?”
On average, 2g
“What comes after 00/000?”
Refer to the chart:
Gauge Inches Millimeters
2ga 1/4" 6.3mm
0ga 5/16" 7.9mm
00ga 3/8" 9.5mm
000ga 7/16" 11.1mm
“How big can I go?”
Depends on the size of your lobes, how thick, and how well you stretch. There are people currently here in America with lobes over 3 inches.
“Why do it?”
Personal choice, everyone’s different.

1. This is an example of an expression that has altered its spelling over time. "Not for donkey's ears" means not for a very long time and refers to the length of a donkey's ears. However, they gradually stretched from the "donkey" and turned "ears" into "years". The meaning of the expression is the same, if it does make rather less sense than the original.
2. Because donkeys tend to plod along slowly, they take a long time to complete a task or journey. Therefore, a donkey year takes a long time to elapse.
I haven't heard that one for donkey's ears.
