I believe that, while scuzz bucket and rat-breath were unknown to me before
Belker used them on Hill Street, I was familiar with scumbag, as well as
scumbucket and scumbum, long before that show came along. When and where
they entered my frame of reference, I'm not at all sure, but here in Indiana
they have been around for a while, I think.
