in the early years of u.k. punk to show appreciation for a band the audience would spit on them. this is called gobbing. i think it also carried over into hip-hop culture over seas but ice-t didn't like getting spit on very much so they were forced to kill the trend.
"hey, stop gobbing on me! i'm not british, you bloody assholes! i'm a folk artist!"
''Shut yer gob fannybawz''
A term inspired by the US comedy series Arrested Development
. It refers to one of the show's central characters, 'GOB', an arrogant, shameless, self promoting showman.
In real world terms, "a GOB" is someone who displays the same classless showmanship, such as the lead singer of a pub covers band who thinks he's the greatest thing since Barry White but can't sing to save himself, or a standup commedian who obviously thinks his material is great, when in reality it stinks. Badly.
Me: This is the worst band I've ever seen.
Kate: Yeah, the lead singer's a freakin' GOB.
of Irish origin.
Word in the Irish language.
In Irish (Gaeilge
)gob, meaning beak
transfered as slang in English as mouth
"shut your gob!" ("shut your mouth!")
A gob is a double dipped frozen banana with everything on it. It requires two sticks to support the extra chocolate and nuts.
Gob: Give me a gob.
Gob: No, I didn't mean for you to yell my name at me. Its what I call a double dipped banana with everything on it.
