It means you are a funny person who people laugh with. However Dag also means a piece of poo stuck to a sheeps tail, so better check!!!!

yes a dag is the stuff stuck to a sheeps rear.

But if someone was to say to you "you're a real dag" it is a friendly way of saying "you're a real character""or maybe "a bit of a joker".

basically just someone who's funny. (totally unrelated to the sheep sh.ite)
check "bit of a dag" at

http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~sarah/content/slang.html

check some of the others too - may prove usefull.

Given the above - doesn't take much imagination to work out how this saying came about....

"rattle your dags": get a move on, hurry up
