It means "holy grail". It's used to denote someone's favorite item, something that works best for them. Hope that helps! :)

That's right. HG means Holy Grail. :) It just means that it's the product that has all the qualities that you've been searching for...like it's the perfect product for you...if that makes sense. lol. :)

Don't worry! I didn't know what it was either. I had to go look at the abbreviations listed in the top of the page here at MUT!

Thank you for asking! This was really helpful. Now I know what that means, and several other abbreviations that I've heard used.

It means Holy Grail. Usually referring to something someone cannot live without. Isnt the English language getting out of hand? LOL

LOL :applaus:

The age of MSN and text messaging, huh.

I just figured out the meaning of HG a few days ago myself! I was too lazy to start a thread/search. Haha.

This is so funny. (I know it's an old thread...) but I am so glad I looked it up. I actually GUESSED holy grail, but that just didn't seem to make sense so I thought that couldn't be it. But that answers my question! :D

the one I hate is lemming.

I know what people mean when they say that, but I don't really understand why. It just doesn't make any sense to me, LOL
