To retreat in some fashion to a more hermit-like, apocalypse-ready mindset and/or lifestyle: I’ve been stockpiling ammo and Nuge-ing a little bit since Obama took the blue pill and threw the Gulf Coast to the wolves.
[C20: After Ted Nugent, the ’70s rock guitarist who sidestepped futility by espousing extreme hunting and survivalist right-wing paranoia]:
To display survivalist paranoia or an oppressively doomsday manner and/or outlook: When faced with a dinner party guest who’s never heard of Monsanto, it’s hard not to Nuge the conversation into a total bring-down.
To kill and eat animals by one’s own hand: I’ve eaten plenty of chickens and cows in my life, but I think I need to Nuge something in order to understand the true karmic weight of eating meat.
Nuge out: vb. To act like Ted Nugent in an unspecified fashion: After he got mugged at gunpoint in Oakland, he Nuged out and bought an AR-15 rifle.
Fascinated with guns, hunting, conspiracy within government, and the false anxiety that outside forces (*ahem* brown people) will somehow deplete one’s resources: Someone so persistently Nugey about the issue of outsourcing telemarketers who “don’t speak American” would not be good company at an Indian buffet.
Possessing Ted Nugent-like qualities, resulting in the loss of popularity or friendship: I had to hide Summer Burkes on Facebook since the Gulf oil spill made her go a little Nugey.
Displaying any sort of hypocritical right-wing or Libertarian mansplainer viewpoint which belies the subject’s past: Nothing’s more Nugey than dodging the draft by shitting your pants and then complaining about “dirty, stinky hippies” who bought your records.
