I cribbed this from Salon, but here's the NYT delicately explaining the meaning of the word "cameltoe", in the context of an article about Fannypack, Brooklyn's up-and-coming hip-hop girl group with a hit single named after the fashion mistake:

Cameltoe is slang for a fashion faux pas caused by women wearing snug pants; the term suggests a visual analogy. The song is a cautionary tale, intended to help victims -- help them, that is, by ridiculing them -- into recovery.
Turns out the song is a product of the guys who ran NYC's underground hip-hop label Indie 5000, which I'm not sure is still active.
