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.
