Hooking or grasping on to the rear bumper of a car or truck when the road is covered in snow and ice. The motorist often doesn't know the youth is squatted down behind the car hanging on to the rear bumper. The 'Hooky-Bobber' gets a free and dangerous ride. Hooky-Bobbing is mostly for a joy-ride, but can be a way to get home from school. The dangers include inhaling car exhaust, motorists traveling at high rates of speed. Rock,gravel,sand and sewer covers in the road that have melted the snow and/or ice resulting in the Hooky-Bobber to be tossed off the rear bumper. Also often times, mittens or gloves get stuck/frozen to the rear bumper.
"Dude! Look at the snow coming down! I can't wait for school to get out to go Hooky-Bobbing!"
