Question "Bottomfeeders"--huh? What's this mean to you?

I've seen this word here and there on DS, and am wondering what, precisely, are people talking about when they use it?? Does it have to do with money (or lack thereof), attitude, or...what?? I'm about to go check on urbandictionary.com, but I'm curious to hear responses here too.

It all goes back to this thread and its equally (if not longer) parent thread. It's just a term coined by us mamas that were making fun of ourselves. Basically, you are either an elite or a bottomfeeder mom (there is a quiz in one of those threads that will tell you which one you are).

Basically, it all started because of this post:

HOWEVER, if you ERF until 3 and your kids are in a Britax, you are automatically a 32% better parent (14% for the Britax, 18% for the ERF), and you have some junk food points to spare.
And it just took off from there. Like what things gave you more points and such. Turns out that fondling almond nipples in order to give your kids almond milk gives you extra points but if you feed your kids nothing but hohos and twinkies CPS will take your kids away and give them to Amber from Teen Mom.

Well, if you're a bottomfeeder you get storebought six day old cookies with food coloring instead of chocolate chips. If you're an elite parent you get homemade organic cookies made with grains planted on top of your child's placenta and ground by hand. The chocolate came from the cacao plant you planted as a child and cooked in a solar oven. After that, we'll let you go to the river and wash the clothes.

Yeah, most of us are like that. The whole point of the threads was not to put down or make fun of any set of parents. It was a way of us poking fun at ourselves for the crazy things that we do/feel guilty about. If I feed my child "junk" food every once in a while, I shouldn't have to feel guilty for doing so and making my child have diabetes or be obese when he grows up. kwim?
