    I just read Elmore Leonard's City Primeval and Gold Coast in his collection Double Dutch Treat (I've previously mentioned that I read Moonshine War a while ago). In both novels, he uses the slang term chickenfat as an insult. I've never encountered that outside of these 2 novels, was this in use or something Leonard made up or what?

    I did enjoy both novels.
