adj. Very stupid or foolish.
Pronounced "on gau" (The 9 is pronounced in Cantonese)

Cantonese slang used mainly by young Hong Kong Chinese. First originated on the Internet (isn't everything) but soon spread to everyday speech.

Originates from two words:
The first part "on" comes from "On ghuy" - a cantonese slang word meaning foolish.
The second part "9" comes from "gau" - a cantonese slang word meaning penis.

Also used as part of the phrase "on9 zai" meaning foolish man/boy.

A foul language term in Cantonese , mainly used in Hong Kong.

When someone did something stupid or doing something silly. We will usually call them " on 9 " - Which means " stupid penis " in english.

the number " 9 " is from the pronouciation of " penis " in Cantonese.

An excellent word for saying this to people in Hong Kong.
Mr.Tung is an on 9. ( Mr.Tung is a stupid penis )
Don't be on 9 la. ( Don't be stupid )
