1. Fresh Of The Boat
2. variation of WOP, without papers
Origins can be tracked back to Ellis Island with the huge influx of immagrants flooding into the United States in the late 1800's.
The workers on Ellis Island coined the term when immagrants who spoke no English nor had and sense of "Americanism" arrived. Used in a derrogatory sense.
Later FOB became popular in the 50's on remote vacation destinations (Hawaii etc..) and still later in California with the huge rush of Vietnamese immagrants in the late 70's and 80's.

A racially derogatory term used by confused Asian Americans who forgot their roots. They subconsciously think they are somehow superior because they can speak "white" language better than their native brothers and sisters. It's so ingrained in them that they think it is funny. Ever wonder why English in Asian accent sounds funny whereas European accent is considered sexy? Wake up Twinkies and Black Wannabes!
Adj. He/she sounds like a fob.

N. That fob is so goofy.

Form an abbreviation of "fresh off the boat," originally meant anyone who was a recent immigrant or acted like one, but now used mostly on Asians. It used to be used to describe anyone immigrant-like, but now it is used more often as describing a young person who is stereotypically Asian-American (ex- listening to Korean music, being extremely smart, watching anime, reading manga, etc.). Can also be used as 'fobby,' fobbish,' etc. A common fob pose is making a peace sign with your hands. A less-common usage is as an abbreviation for the band Fall Out Boy.
That new girl is so fobby. She's in AP Stats, has an iPod full of Korean music, and has a bookshelf filled with manga books.


How was the FOB concert last night?
