After a discussion on "bellend" at Strong Language:

https://stronglang.wordpress.com/2017/08/02/the-fresh-prints-of-bell-end/

I found an antedating of the OED's sense 3b. "A foolish or
contemptible man or boy" (1998).

is that onion badgies, you meant.
or perhaps you are referring to that infamous collection of bellends,
known as w.b.a. (win bugger all).
it seems they are doing quite well, although they are playing against
part-timers.
quit
