Moose Knuckle is the slang expression for the male camel toe; when pants are too tight and pulled up too high, revealing the shape and outline of the genitalia for all to see.
Apart from looking ridiculous, a “moose knuckle” is highly uncomfortable, as the fabric of the trousers is separating the testicles from each other, cutting in between the two nuts.
Alternatively, a camel toe that is extremely visible and prevalent, may be referred to as a “moose knuckle”.
The phrase’s origin is dated to be 1988 by Partridge’s New Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, while camel toe is dated to the 1990’s.
Both of the slang expressions are referring to the visual similarity between the feet of the two animal species and the shape of genitalia, revealed by pulled up pants.
Apart from being a slang phrase, Moose Knuckles are also a Canadian sportswear company, created in 2007.
The expression was first defined on Urban Dictionary in 2003, with a large amount of other definitions written on the matter since then.
