While in no way affiliated with the "Russian grandmother" translation, babooshka is the kindest, most loving term of endearment one can give their main partner. Only to be used in the highest of sickly-sweet romantic situations. Use "booshk" for more casual settings such as a one-night stand.

Babooshkas are cantankerous old ladies in Russia who work in public buildings doing more or less nothing at all.

As living throwbacks to the Soviet era, they enforce both real and imagined petty regulations with Stakanovite zeal and enthusiasm.

Museums, cloakrooms, and metro kiosks are their natural habitats.
"That babooshka over there just told me that it's forbidden to look out of the windows!"

Boys summer camps are always full of legends. One of the most well-known legends is Babooshka, who is a person who supposedly roams from bathrooms inside summer camp saying "wipey time". An urban legend of sleepaway camps. People joke around by saying that they are Babooshka when someone asks who is in the stall next door.
Ari (a camper): who's in the stall next to me?

babooshka (a different camper): My name is Babooshka!

Babooshka can be used to describe anyone and everything, good or bad. Or it can be used to fill on for a "bad" word.
