1) (noun) An object that, while not necessarily originally intended as a weapon (and otherwise bears no resemblance), is used as one. A steak knife, for instance, would not be a shank (and is, as well, a poor ad hoc choice for a weapon), but a screwdriver, heavy duty flashlight, or socket wrench would be.

Origin unknown, but I think it has something to do with home made knives. See also shiv.

2) (verb) To use a shank. (Shanked, past tense)
Jorge was shanked with a screwdriver by Miguel when he failed to pass on his protection money.

Also...

1) Dice. Note that this sense is never used singularly - you never roll "a bone", you roll "the bones". Origin unclear - but I suspect it has something to do with certain voodoo in which a practicer would cast bones for fortune telling.

2) Monetary units, usually US dollars. Used for high numbers generally. Origin again unclear here, but possibly alludes to an arm and a leg.
2) Dude, that designer shirt is gonna cost you fifty bones.
