Quan can not be defined. Usually used at the end of sentences (except in its interjectional forms) it is an ideological phrase that has many various and eclectic meanings. Similar to the tabooed "f" word, quan can act as a euphemism expressing something from being nettlesome to something being detrimental. When used alone as an interjection, it epitomizes a state of relief or happiness, as opposed to its verb and noun forms.
Noun: I can't believe he did that bro, what a quan.
Verb: 1. A: "Don't call me bro you faggot!" B: "Woah dog, I dont know why you're quanning."
2. Don't quan around or you might die.
3. A: "What happened when you slipped and fell?" B: "I just quaned."
Interjection: Quan! Quan bro! I'm so happy to see you!
Phrasal Interjection: What the quan?
