Helen’s Dad wants to know what the definition of gams is as in: “You got some nice gams!”
“Is it the whole leg or just the calf? And does it relate to yams in some way?” he asks.
Okay, so here’s the deal. Gams are the whole leg. The origin of the word is from the Italian, gamba. It doesn’t have anything to do with yams (which are not the same as sweet potatoes but that’s another post, probably not on MRP).
And no, you can’t pull it off unless you are Dick Tracy. Otherwise, I’m telling human resources on you.
