to steal, generally opportunistically, that is, to take everything that isn't nailed down as soon as the owner has his/her/its (possibly proverbial) back turned; etymology: Named for the Chicago suburb of Elgin, Illinois (see other entries for "elgin"), part of Illinois' "Coalition of Crime": Aurora, Decatur, East St. Louis, and Elgin.
Loquo: We left the hotel with more bags of sh*t than we came in with. The cleaning lady came in, and the room was already clean. LOL, man we elgin-ed everything!

DP: Did you elgin the free towels down at the pool?

Loquo: Naw, man, I forgot. Next time, though!

DP: Man, I wheeled the whole cart outside; threw it in the truck; passed out towels like beers, when I got back to campus.

A: Right on, dog!

Small obscure rural town located near South Carolina's capital city of Columbia punctuated by random single-wide trailer homes. The one grocery store is like a gross-you-out food oddity museum for out-of-towners, stocked full with delicious redneck delights such as pork brains, pork snouts, pork tongues, fatback and chitlins in family sized packs. The local social life revolves around the post office as everyone in town stops by for a postage stamp on a daily basis. The town is proud of its history and recently celebrated a centennial and purchased a pretty neat looking town clock. But if you drive through looking for anything historical, you'll be hard pressed to find more than a charming old shack or two.
What's up in Elgin tonight?

Let's go hang out at the post office.

The worst city in all of Texas. Where all the prostitutes go after a long days work. The "gangstas" here are as fake as Charlie Sheens sobriety. Nothing but wiggers who eventually will get shot in their cracker ass. For every high school girl goes into labor, another 4 get pregnant. The possibilities of getting shot in Elgin are 99.9% So don't come here while you still have a chance.
Person 1: "Hey, what's up? Where are you from?"
Person 2: "Elgin Texas"
Person 1: ".....mother fucker get the fuck away from me"
Person 2: "What? I just..."
Person 1: "I said get the fuck away from me"
