Somewhat outdated internet slang for penis.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 and lubricant.

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.
"Why are ancient statues of guys always showing off their pingas?"

"Your drawing is OK, but pingas is not big enough."

Now used as an insult to black people, the tar baby was originally a jet black baby doll (becaue it was made out of tar) used to trap Br'er Rabbit Rabbit in an American folk tale.

Tar baby can also be a term used to describe a "sticky" situation.
It's not racist to call an actual tar baby a tar baby! That's like saying it's racist to call Ritz "crackers" or chocolate sandwich cookies "Oreos"!
