Kankers was a term used for the trailer trash girls from the TV Show Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy. The phrase was attributed to the rich people that lived in Winter Creek Court. The kanker term officially refers to three Clackamas High School Dance Team members (unnamed for their protection) and their families. There are technically 4 houses in Winter Creek Court, but one of them has old people living in it so they don't count.
The boys used to go on "kanker runs" where they would run or rollerblade out into the court and yell at the kankers loudly.
When Adam read The Outsiders by SE Hinton freshman year, he made a connection between the greasers (AML crew) and the Socs (the Kankers). Liam once suggested an alternate name for the kankers, the Social Darwinists. The name was suggested because of their republican and capitalistic political views. Adam called him a "faggot", and that was that.
