From actor Humphrey Bogart's sense of selfishness and excess, the term has evolved from the original 1960’s use meaning “keep a joint in the mouth instead of passing it on”, recalling the actor’s signature practice of constantly keeping a cigarette dangling out of his mouth, even while talking. Other senses of “bullying” or “tough guy” also recall the actor’s various movie roles.
