A term which is most commonly known to teenagers and adults alike in the G.T.A. (Greater Toronto Area) in Canada. The term refers to an Italian (or one of Southern European descent, ie. Greek or Armenian) male who is from Canada and not from the country of their ancestry. A typical gino enjoys lively techno music (deemed "gino beats"), wears tight or sporty clothing (some brands include Adidas, Puma, Kappa and Diesel), likes small and sporty European cars, wears his hair spiked or curly and is supposedly of little or no intellect.
However, this term is very limited as it often applies to people who do not wish to be called ginos or are not considered to be ginos by the "true" ones. Also, it must be stated that there are several people who can be given the characteristics of a gino but are not at all unintelligent. Whether you believe you are or someone you know is a gino, is up to you. Just don't judge too harshly.
I'm an Armenian guy who likes wearing Adidas tracksuits, and my hair spiky. I would like to drive a sports car while listening to techno music quite loudly. However, my grades are above the expected grades of a typical gino. What does that make me?

A quasi-legitimate excuse to take a day off from school or work. Although the person who takes the day off claims he needs it to finish up some work and regain sanity from the rat race, he usually ends up sleeping in, masturbating and accomplishing less than nothing.
J.C. said he took a mental health day to catch up with work and relax, but instead, spent the whole day fantasizing about Jamie.
A compact automobile manufactured by Mercedes-Benz. It has been available in Europe for several years and in Canada for a year or so, arriving in the U.S. as late as 2007. Its advantage to other cars is its incredible efficiency. With today's rising gas prices, a car that can give you 55 miles-per-gallon can certainly save you a lot of money. True, it isn't the best looking car in the world. However, in a certain amount of time, most S.U.V.'s and other large cars will be replaced by compact cars to save costs and maintain efficiency and practicality.
"The Smart Car has got to be the shittiest car I've ever seen."
"We don't all enjoy paying $200 just to fill up the tank."
