Fob is also known as Fresh Off the Beehengi, for all of you that are korean...if you're not, beehengi is plane. I think the Fobs are the ones that made this word up because how else would you know the word beehengi if you aren't a FOB?
"dude, look at that Fob and the super bright colors that she's wearing...they don't even match!"

noun. Abbreviation: Fresh of the Boat. Pronounced "Fahb". A person, most often of Asian descent, so new to the country that they don't understand much of Western culture and customs. Usually indicates weak command of the English language as well.
We met some hot Japanese fobs in Arcadia the other day.
That girl's nice, but she's too much of a fob for me.

Fresh off the boat.

When used for Koreans, fresh off the be-hang-gee (plane).
Listen to that f.o.b talking.

As well as Fresh Off The Boat, it is used to describe people that can't speak/write proper English (usually as a joke)

In addition to an extremely racist term to describe someone who attempts to integrate into American culture despite not speaking the language and is looked down on by society for being different, it also means a keychain or lanyard.
Check out my cute new Hello Kitty fob! My friend Art sent it to me from JAPAN, yo.

1. Fresh Of The Boat
2. variation of WOP, without papers
Origins can be tracked back to Ellis Island with the huge influx of immagrants flooding into the United States in the late 1800's.
The workers on Ellis Island coined the term when immagrants who spoke no English nor had and sense of "Americanism" arrived. Used in a derrogatory sense.
Later FOB became popular in the 50's on remote vacation destinations (Hawaii etc..) and still later in California with the huge rush of Vietnamese immagrants in the late 70's and 80's.
Hey John, that new kid Phoeng is such a FOB - did you see what he's wearing...(insert cruel 9 year old laugh)
