As a child of the 70s and a confirmed Little Feat fan--they did a mean
rendition of "Don't Bogart that Joint, My Friend" on the live album WAITING
FOR COLUMBUS--I always thought that it meant "to hog."  In the song, the
imperitive is "pass it over," which is not an anti-slobber directive.  But to
be fair, I've also been involved in this slobber-hog debate.
