-Adj. (Pobe-lay) Poor baby, Poor thing. Often referring to cute, small, furry, live objects: toy dog breeds, relatively little mammals, or rodents.
The word is a "white-washed" mispronunciation of the phrase "poor thing!" translated into Spanish such as, "pobrecito!". The word "cito" (thing) is dropped and the "br" in "pobre" (poor) turns into an "l" sound (white-washed Spanish). Pobrecito -> Pobre -> Poble
Look at that baby rat dying in the gutter! What a poble.
Aww, isn't my yorkshire terrier such a poble?
