Throughout history, there are some things that just defy explanation or understanding. Occasionally, archeologists will uncover a new artifact that completely upends everything we thought about an ancient culture, shedding new light on a long-deceased civilization. Now, just like the Rosetta stone helped Egyptologists to understand ancient Egyptian languages, Sisqó has finally explained exactly what the term “She had dumps like a truck” means.
Yes, the famous line from his Y2K smash “Thong Song” has mystified scholars since it came out. Was it meant to be a “junk in the trunk”-esque ode to large posteriors? Was Sisqó harboring a secret fetish for, ahem—dumps? Was he just really into female construction workers? After more than a decade, we finally have answers to one of the planet’s greatest mysteries.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Sisqó denied the poop rumors. “That would mean I was some kind of fecal freak,” he said. “What I was really referring to was ― a dump truck when it backs up, it’s like, ‘beep, beep beep.’ So, ‘she had dumps like a dump truck’ is, like, when girls do a booty dance move and they look back at their butt. She’s like a dump truck back-back-backing it up.”
Yes, this earth-shattering revelation is bound to be the subject of scholarly journals for years to come. It seems unlikely that academia will ever be the same, but such is life when we work to unravel the mysteries of the past. As we peel back the shroud of history, we reveal the dumps of the civilizations that came long before us. Whether it’s Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, Homer’s The Oddessy, the Bible itself, or “Thong Song,” it’s amazing how the pillars of our society harbor such great secrets.
