An undesirable female.
In order to officially qualify as a burma, the woman must meet at least two of the following three criteria:
1. She must be old.
2. She must be fat.
3. She must be mean, or have an otherwise exceptionally terrible personality.
The male equivalent of this word is burmo.
That burma just shit her pants at the grocery store.
Have you ever ever met Frank's mom? Such a burma, dude.
