You’ve probably heard of a TV show named Scrub or heard the song of the same title from TLC. Originally, it was a term used to describe someone who is a newbie to a video game. Now, a scrub is someone who is bad at an activity in general. But for the TLC song, it sings:

A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly 

And is also known as a buster 

Always talkin’ about what he wants 

And just sits on his broke ass 

Do you know any other definition for the word Scrubs?
