The word "scumbag" today has a highly aggressive meaning and indicates a person's lack of usefulness, importance or function to the society in general. But in fact, initially, the slang was used to refer to condoms!

Scumbag was literally translated as 'foam bag' or 'semen bag'- the word scum meant a layer dirt or foam on the surface of a liquid- just like the content of a used condom.
