To put off something until the last minute, most commonly seen using a classroom assignment as the object.
Jeremy was joshing his english paper by procrastinating.

Ms. Smith: "Your report is written in crayon and has coffee stains on it."
Jeremy: "Sorry about that, ma'am. I joshed it."
Ms. Smith: "Is that blood on the edges?"
Jeremy: "It's tervor vanilla. I was hungry."

Joking; just kidding: Comes from the name Joshua the jokester.
Joshua the jokester got tired of people always saying, "just kidding" a phrase that was being referred towards him, since Joshua was a jokester; therefore he decided to use joshing instead of joking, or just kidding.

Verb 1. The act of extending a meeting / conversation through the dominance of one's own dialogue.

2. Being caught in a conversation with a tall Englishman that seems unlikely to end.
1. I thought 15 minutes would be enough time to take a coffee order, only for him to start Joshing for the next 50 minutes.

2. Hey, did you see that girl over there? Seems like she was getting Joshed on...

Making a simple, inoffensive joke that nevertheless somehow hurts a friend's feelings.
"That was a low, back-handed blow there, mate."
"I was just joshing you. Don't take it to heart."
