Definition funny of Raggy:
Raggy is a term of unknown origin dating back to at least 1965, widely used in the northwest corner of Connecticut to describe someone who was born or residing in (but not limited to) Winsted, Connecticut. The term "raggy" is generally limited to someone between the ages of 12-25, past the age of 25 it is widely agreed the raggy graduates to being white trash A typical raggy can be found riding their stolen black spray painted BMX bike in the downtown areas of Winsted and surrounding micropolises (Torrington also being a raggy hotspot). The characteristics of a raggy are constant from each offender. Your standard raggy can be found wearing an 80s metal t-shirt, or the latest t-shirt from hot topic displaying an ironic slogan on the front. Along with their nonexistent sense of style, raggies can generally be found with hair that has been uncut for the better part of a year, and sporting spotty facial hair that badly needs to be shaved (see rat stache). A raggies hygiene seems to be almost nonexistent; it is not a stretch to say that raggies do not bathe for days, if not weeks, at a time. A raggies home life can be described as turbulent at best. Amateur sociologist’s research has concluded that the raggy bloodline generally extends through numerous generations, and the typical raggy stems from unloving alcoholic parents and succumb to this gruesome subculture as a way to get back at their guardians, unknowingly taking the paths that their parents took when they were youths. Raggies have historically not taken well to the educational system, and surmised research has been conclusive in stating that the average dropout rate of a raggy is upwards of 67%. This lack of education can effectively attribute to a raggies lack of income later in life. It seems that this high dropout rate goes hand in hand with a raggies lack of respect for authority, only creating more trouble for them in their devious path of life.

The term raggies originated during the time when the Northwest Corner of Connecticut was known for the iron industry, particularly the town of Salisbury and Mount Riga. It was a term used for the iron workers and the charcoal makers. Contrary to some definitions it has nothing to do with Torrington or Winsted. This term is also used for people that have a long ancestory in the town of Salisbury.
