"Gill" as in "giving a gill" A term used around the late 80s-early 90s, possibly regional, by children as a proclamation that someone/a friend just said something incredibly stupid or incorrect, AND that they deserve to be humiliated. It was shouted as he/she simultaneously burns the back of the other person's neck with a fast horizontal rub of the hand. Similar in nature to an Indian burn.
Person 1: Yeah, well your mother is your father. (I'm paraphrasing.)
Person 2: Not funny. You deserve a gill for that. Gill!
Person 1: Ow. What the hell?
Person 3: You're 17 and still giving people gills?
Person 2: Oh, wow. I haven't remembered a gill in a long time. Hah.

An action which was quite widespread in New York and possibly in other locations during the early 1990's. When someone would say something incorrect or stupid, any party who witnessed this could proclaim "Gill!", and then proceed to rub the back of the offender's neck with their hand, causing minor irritation to a red mark, depending on the severity of the given gill. One could also proclaim "Save mine", which would allow the person to administer the gill to the offender at a later point in time. It should be noted, however, that if the person committing the slip-up takes notice of their folly before anyone calls a gill on them, they can say "pause" and then could not be subjected to a gill. If someone calls gill after the initial speaker says pause, it's a gill on them. Giving gills is great but getting them isn't.
Person 1: "Yo, Iverson dropped 50 on the Sonics last nite...pause...he dropped 43."

Person 2: "Gill"

Person 1: "Chill, I already said pause. Save mine."

Person 2: "Damn."
