A term used to describe soldiers in Iraq that rarely if ever leave the relative safety of the Forward Operating Base (FOB). This is a perjoritive term used by soldiers that spend a lot of time outside the wire beaing shot at and dodging road-side bombs, for those soldiers that live a safer and more comfortable life.
The damn fobbits all seem to be getting the new armor before we do, and they don't even need it.

"FUFB!" A chalk message on my platoons vehicles that loosely translates to "F#@k yoU FoBbits!

The name of those who choose to stay on base rather than run missions on a FOB (Forward Operating Base). Term usually used for grunts when talking about the annoying admin guy.
Did you see LCpl Joyce telling war stories to the new guys... He is such a annoying little FOBbit.

Any person who is in the military, but who when deployed, stays on tha FOB (forward Operating Base) and never crosses the wire where it's actaully dangerous. Mostly used in a derogatory fashion by those who actually do risk their lives. Most Marines and Soldiers aren't fobbits. Most of the Air Force are fobbits except for Vehicle Operators.(Go Veh Ops!!!!!), Security Forces and special forces. And the Navy well who cares about tha navy theyre all gay anyway.
Vehicle operator:

Hey SSgt Barnes!! why dont u get off your ass for once and do an actual convoy instead of going to that stupid yoga class or poetry night bs! u fobbit!

SSgt Barnes:

(in a southern black accent) oh no u didnt! Lets get some chicken in this muhfucka yeh!

(noun) a person who is short and is of foreign origin by birth, usually native to Asia.

Etymology: an Asian immigrant = "FRESH OFF the BOAT", abbreviated "FOB" + "Hobbit", coined by J.R.R. Tolkien to mean "a member of a fictitious peaceful and genial race of small humanlike creatures that dwell underground"
That fobbit is good in math.

An acronym for Fat Old Balding Blokes In Tee Shirts.

When internet chatroom regulars meet up for a social occasion, the older, fatter men will often dress in tee-shirts to try and appear younger. The tee-shirts are invariably black or very dark (with some trendy picture or humorous comment) to try to hide their spreading girth.
Did you see the meet up pics? What a load of fobbits!

They might be trolling on-line, but they dress as fobbits when you meet them.

It's a waste of time you trying to buy tee-shirts in trendy shops - they don't cater for fobbits.
