shined-on

Definition

Slang

  • adjective ignored, disregarded. Its origin may be by analogy with mooning (showing one’s buttocks as a gesture of contempt) or connected with the noun shine, meaning a black person, hence a social inferior, or more poetically may derive from the image of the moon shining down with cold indifference.
