: what does 'How you hanging?' mean?

It's a casual (VERY casual) greeting spoken by one man to another. Another form is "How's it hanging?" The literal reference is to the male organ, but the question just means "How are you?" or "How's everything?" To stay out of trouble, do not use this line except with very close male friends.
