their pidgin is usually heavier; they're like hawaiian macgyvers with their creativity, but their things usually aren't as cool. such as someone i know, who duct taped 2 mcdonalds tray to a piece of ply board, and used it to go grassboarding.
people often mistake mokes for being stupid, but they're not... they just have a different sense of thought; often not caring about things that people might consider important to intelligence, what they do know and know about, they're very smart when it comes to the facts of those.

The Moke Out Mob from Mill Valley, California are people who represent taking fatty moke bong rips.
"Moke" can be used to describe a male (usually of Hawiian descent, and/or from/living in Hawaii) who exhibits traits of outgoing, personality type "B", and/or "bully" style behavior.
Males that cause others to cross the street to avoid them may sometimes be called "mokes".
Percieved "bullies" may sometimes be called "mokes".
Agressive, while not always violent behavior, may be exhibited. At the same time, verbal opinions, points of view, comments, and/or exclamations will be expressed using the commonly accepted, Hawaiian pidgin dialect.
While the term "moke" invokes images of negative connotations, this may not always be the case.
Bouncers, security, older brothers/cousins that don't like you trying to date their little sisters/cousins may also be wrongly classified as "mokes", due to the fact that they usually scare the user.
Her uncle that hates you
The neighborhood kid who wanna be da kine badd ass
Pitbull Owners (this includes other "bad ass" breeds as well)
Guys that typically cause fear without ever speaking to them
The guys that laughed and/or picked on you in school for being a kook
...are usually labled "mokes".
Use your imagination to determine what a "moke-ette" can be.
They also have low-income familys. Which probably explains why they can't speak proper English. Which makes it very hard to understand them

Moke: Faka, you teasing me?

Moke: psh, faka you not worth it brah. *walks away*
person: Jeeze, he's such a moke I swear. *shakes head*
