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!

A word used to describe a girl you're very fond of. This word means, in essence, that she's beautiful, funny, smart, and means a great deal to you. A pokey is your ride or die, your go to girl, and your one and only.

See Gumby. Orange protoplasmic horse sidekick to green hand- and foot-less Claymation hero. Not very bright but quite willing.
Gumby: Pokey, please get your tail out of the fire
