A stick used in building and maintaining a campfire to arrange and rearrange the wood so as to minimize the number of burns to the fire builder. Next to the Left Handed Smoke Shifter a Pokey is the most necessary thing needed to maintain a good campfire. Especially, good pokey sticks have been known to be named usually with some form of the word pokey such as Pokey, Pokey Jr., or Pokey III.

A slang term for Jail. It's usually used with a humorous tint or in writing or speech that's less than serious or dramatic. This is a very uncommon reference to jail.
That drunken fool landed himself in the pokey.

See Gumby. Orange protoplasmic horse sidekick to green hand- and foot-less Claymation hero. Not very bright but quite willing.

1. Old-time word for "slow".

2. Slang for jail.

3. Gumby's orange pony. Pokey is made out of clay and speaks in a low voice that makes him sound more like a donkey than a pony. Pokey is often jealous of Gumby's talents.

4. A cactus-themed enemy from the Super Mario video game series. Its first appearance was the non-canon Super Mario 2 (Super Mario USA in Japan), but made later appearances in other Mario games including Super Mario World and Paper Mario.

5. A main villain in Earthbound. Pokey is a fat, ego-centric boy who causes trouble for Ness and the others throughout the game. He also appears in Mother 3.
1. Stop being so pokey and catch up!

2. He got thrown in the pokey last night.

3. With his cowboy hat on, Gumby rode Pokey through the desert.

4. Don't jump on a Pokey! They're spiny!

5. Pokey REALLY means business now!

Prison, a place where government thinks the sly, criminal-minded belong.
Bollocks! Aidan almost got his skinny asphalt locked up in the pokey for doing a 1520.
