What is a hobnocker?

Hobnocker
  • A hobnocker is someone that does something illegal and gross (not to be confused with "hobnobber," which is a cool and awesome geek).
  • A hobnocker is someone that is addicted to illegal drugs, or an alcoholic.
  • A hobnocker is a derogatory term describing a lowlife and pervert.
  • A hobnocker is a person who goes around slapping people with their genitalia, masturbating in public or engaging in sexual acts with animals.

Apparently this term was first used by Wade Collins and then David Archuleta on the "iCarly" show. It does not appear in any reputable dictionary. The Urban Dictionary has several suggested definitions, but they only started appearing afterthe "iCarly" episode aired. So, it is whatever the writers of the show wanted it to mean. Whatever it is, it is "gross" and "illegal."

Why do people use slang?

It is easy, and plus some people want to use slang so that their parents or anyone else doesn't know what they are talking about. It is the same with txt mssgng (text messaging) as people are so lazy that they cn't even use vwls anymore!

It is also indicative of a poor vocabulary and difficulty of sef-expresion. Slang has a place in social situations , but if you want a good job, learn and use proper English in the workplace.

I'm from Scotland. Slang is a part of our culture. Well..to most people who live in other countries we speak slang..we're really just speaking Scottish dialect to some extent, the majority of it is slang though.

>i agree i use slang alot and cuz off that its effctin my English im usin it now cuz im used to it but its come into everyday ppls lives and yes i will carry on usin it as a matter of habit tho i shudnt !!!!!

Also it is used by teenagers to act like they are cool! It draws attention to people and it is like another language which adults can't read or understand!
Bc they don't know how to say the right words!

What are the most common slang words used in basketball and what do they mean?

The most common would probably be jayed (made a mid-range shot over someone), and one (a foul and a made basket), and banked in (made the basket in off the backboard).

There aren't really slang words used in basketball in my experience but there are some words you can say when you're playing on defense like help, deny, and line but it depends on what position you're playing. wet- swish jayed-you made a shot over a defender got 'em- cracked someone abuser-backboard shot backboard abuser- means that person uses the backboard all the time rachett- when you make belive pull it out it means you about to make every shot Walk=A move with the basketball without taking a dribble Double=Dribbling the ball, picking it up, then dribbling again Shook=When you go for the fake of your offender "Run it Back"=repeat the game you just played Stripped=when you get the ball stolen from you Pinned/stuffed=when a lay-up gets blocked Tic/Clock/Burn=Playing Time Handles=good dribbling ability "D up"=Play hard defense Gun=Shooting alot And 1=the point with the foul "Wet"=describes your shot, if it's on rock=ball glass=backboard board=rebound downtown=from 3 point range paint=free throw lane air ball=a shot attempt that misses the rim hops=a player that can jump epecially well camped out=a player that stays in one spot on the floor for a long period flop=a player that goes down with little contact in order to draw an offensive foul brick=a shot with terrible form that results in a miss prayer=a shot attemted from outside the normal range of a player usually with the clock running out schooled=a successfull offensive play that makes the definsive player look bad packed=a blocked shot hack=usually an intentional foul thats all I can think of for now Stuff- Stop a Shot to the hoop The Bucket means they put the ball in the hoop!

What does the word Pinhead mean in railroad slang?

When train cars are linked together{coupled} it was much like a trailer hitch, but instead of a ball hitch, there was a pin hitch. The man who aligned the hitch and dropped in the pin was sometimes referred to as the "Pinhead" . I'm not sure if this may be a mechanized operation these days.

What is the meaning of 'It sucks'?

It sucks is often used as an interjection in a bad situation. If a rock fell on your toe, you'd scream, "THAT SUCKS!" Or if you were watching a boring show on television, you'd say, "This show sucks!" or, alternatively, "This show sucks ." Saying something "sucks" is somewhat vulgar, but very common place, even more so than curse words.

"It sucks" is a phrase usually said when a person does not like what he or she hears, sees, or sometimes they use it on themselves or other people.

Examples:

  • "I suck at bowling" might be used by somebody who says he is not good at bowling.
  • "I think you suck at Algebra" might be used by a person that thinks that his friend is not good at Algebra.
  • "Can't we go somewhere else? This place sucks." could be used when somebody does not like the place he is in.

The word "suck" should not be used very often. It is sometimes considered vulgar or improper.

Originally, it was a mild insult, putting someone down. It came from the idea of piercing a hole (or two at either end) of an uncooked egg, and then sucking or blowing the raw egg outside of the shell, without cracking the shell. Thus the empty eggshell could then be used in some craft activity.

Since no one liked the idea of having to eat an uncooked egg (Yukk!!), "Go suck an egg!" became a popular male slang insult, similar to " Go fly a kite!"

Then its use and meaning decayed and degenerated into the sexual 'blow/suck ' usage termed "Dirty English."

Today's overuse is much more disparagingly insulting, to the point of a socially unacceptable vulgarism, yet very popular among both sexes.

What does it mean to call someone Elmo?

when you call someone Elmo that means you are calling someone Elmo off of sesamie street.

YEAH, that's it! If you are under 7 years old and watch BIG BIRD......

The term ELMO is assigned to younger GAY men who are more feminine, or in touch with their feminine side than your average male. The ELMO'S in this instance are known to have a higher pitched voice that men of their age. SO MUCH FOR THE SESAME STREET THEORY.......
