An african-american style threat obtained on the account of insubordination often from parent to child (as well as other exchanges). It is not strictly limited to african-americans. Although it is usually just an empty threat used to express reproval, it very well can be followed by a severe beatdown or whoop. The whooping itself can be performed using accessories such as a belt.
O hell no, son, you better not eat that last piece of chicken or im gon' whoop yo' ass!
I heard you dropped outta school and gon' to jail. Thats my boy! But now i heard that you be foolin wid dose white boys! Come here, im gon' whoop yo' ass!
a royal beating obtained for any transgression or misbehavior, usually from foreign parents and especially indian subcontinent parents (like how "whoop yo ass" most often refers to an african-american style beat down). A most vicious form of child abuse though it usually always passes the radar of child protection services. This is because by the time child protection services would reach you, you would receive the most "epic beating the world has ever witnessed".
