An insult developed from the special education department B.O.C.E.S. , it is a word that people use to insult people who are mentally challenged, or people who just act stupid. Its creation was based on the idea that people who attended BOCES were the "boces" either unaware or not-caring of the fact the the "S" on the end of "BOCES" is actually a part of the acronym, not the kind of "s" on the end of a word that makes it plural. The insult isn't always used to put down "slow" people, however. Sometimes it's just used as a general insult. If someone being annoying they may sometimes be called boces. It is also sometimes mistakenly pronounced "boass"(bəʊs), not pronouncing the "e" on account of the fact that most words spelt like "boce" don't pronounce the "e" such as "dose", "close", "hose" and "rose". They are pronounced as if the "e" isn't even there.
Stop being such a boce, John!

Function: noun and adjective
Pronunciation: \'Bō sē\ plural \'Bō sēs\

A colloquialism that took form in upstate New York based on the Acronym "Board of Cooperative Educational Services". B.O.C.E.S.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Board_of_Cooperative_Educational_Services

the Acronym is roughly used as a synonym like "cripple" or "retard" Boce or Boces and is often mixed Boce+Retard for the popular "bO-tard";

The words are used as slang, taking the place of Retard, Idiot, Dumb-ass, Dumby and even just as a description for someone with any general physical handicap.
Only a Boce could fail that test

There are too many loud ugly Boces here to have a good time.

You fell off your bike like a bO-tard!

Noun, plural in construction but singular in usage. Originates from the acronym "Board Of Cooperative Educational Services," (or something similar), a 'special education' system often used to educate mentally-retarded people (frequently children, but occasionally brain-damage victims) as much as one possibly could, which, typically, isn't much. The acronym eventually became a term to describe any person so enrolled in one of these systems, and through logical extension, a an insult to suggest that they are as intelligent and mentally competent as a person enrolled in a BOCES system.
