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.

A racially derogatory term used by confused Asian Americans who forgot their roots. They subconsciously think they are somehow superior because they can speak "white" language better than their native brothers and sisters. It's so ingrained in them that they think it is funny. Ever wonder why English in Asian accent sounds funny whereas European accent is considered sexy? Wake up Twinkies and Black Wannabes!
Adj. He/she sounds like a fob.

N. That fob is so goofy.

Form an abbreviation of "fresh off the boat," originally meant anyone who was a recent immigrant or acted like one, but now used mostly on Asians. It used to be used to describe anyone immigrant-like, but now it is used more often as describing a young person who is stereotypically Asian-American (ex- listening to Korean music, being extremely smart, watching anime, reading manga, etc.). Can also be used as 'fobby,' fobbish,' etc. A common fob pose is making a peace sign with your hands. A less-common usage is as an abbreviation for the band Fall Out Boy.
That new girl is so fobby. She's in AP Stats, has an iPod full of Korean music, and has a bookshelf filled with manga books.


How was the FOB concert last night?
