Newest addition to the Big Book of Bunkum:

cad rags (n. pl.) form-fitting fashion items worn only for display purposes in pulp novels, usually to impress cuisine-conscious cougars out for a night on the prowl

As the Queen of Shebang entered the pungent pantry overflowing with amatory aromas, lavishly melodramatic mood-music sprinkled with copious amounts of candlelight, she knew she was in for a potent pot of perturbations when she spotted the cad rags lurking ever so noticeably behind a scintillating shelf of assorted All-Clad nonstick cookware, beneath a rather grand grilling tool set, and just to the right of a cabinet filled with some rather intriguing small superfluous appliances offering a lifetime of use with a money-back guarantee if not entirely satisfied with the product; ooh-la-la she thought...was this what the Galloping Gourmet had in mind when he offered his fair maidens a night of culinary delight?
