Seriously. This is a slang term from the 80s. From inthe80s.com -
Noun, adj. Started off meaning a punk or new wave look. Later, any slightly avant-garde fashions or hair or music. Mainly Illinois/midwest.
ex. "I love your fluorescent socks, they look awesome with your Gloria Vanderbilts, but aren't you worried they kinda make you look like a cornchip?"
O_o What? Does anyone know the root of this one? Was this a result of one too many AquaNet whip-its? Or is this a pure corn child creation?
