A person who is not quite a tourist, but not a local. Often used to describe a person who owns property in a vacation area and lives there for a season.

They are aware of local customs and frequently curse those damn out-of-towners.

This is common in beach-side towns in the summer
Nicole only lives here for the summer- she's an anchor.

Nicole: damn tourists don't know where they're goin! GET OFF THE ROAD

A large, heavy object dropped from a ship to prevent it from floating away. However, using anchors in the way they are intended to be used is just plain boring. Anchors are much more entertaining if they are dropped from the sky onto the head of someone you hate or generally dislike. In this sense, anchors are closely related to anvils and 16-ton weights. Though less common than its relatives, the anchor is favored by sadists for its broad, dull blade, which creates a spectacle that is generally much more gory than its broad-bottomed alternatives, which are known for creating simple splats or accordion effects.
Edgar hated John Doe. Edgar hated John Doe so much that dropping an anvil or weight on his head simply wouldn't suffice. So, Edgar dropped an anchor on John Doe. As a result, John Doe was splattered AND cleaved messily in half.

Pronounced as the word Anchor.

The acronym for Any Nigga Can Hit Or Ride. Meaning a girl that can easily be fucked by anyone.
All of my boys have hit that at least once. That girl is definitely an A.N.C.H.O.R.

The sexual act of placing both hands flat together and inserting them into a vagina. Once inside, you form both of your hands into fists, therefore “anchoring” the woman. Once she is anchored, she cannot go anywhere unless your fists direct her to. She is at your total control.
“Dude last night i anchored the girl that I brought home. ”

“Wow that is awesome you had you at your total control.”

The final person on a team to flip in any given round of flip cup. The anchor is often a clutch position where the player must make up for the team's slack. Other times the anchor has enough time to show off with a flip under the leg or behind the back, or the always impressive one and a half.
We were about to lose the match, but Flynn was anchor and made a clutch one-flip for the game winner.

Brett was being a dick as anchor and decided to flip behind the back since we were so far ahead.
