The definition given below is a new one on me, but that doesn't mean it's
not valid. As to the meaning of Bogarting as hogging something like a
"cigarette," let me refer you to the soundtrack of Easy Rider and a song
titled "Don't Bogart That Joint, My Friend."

Still grimly hanging onto the counterculture,
