Taken from the old Joe Palooka comic strip: a big boxer hero that helped fight the bad guys.

The word palooka has now become somewhat of a negative term usually preceded by the word "big".

Large man, clumsy man, oaf, fighter, bully, brawler.

Somewhat of a slang term.
Get away from me ya big palooka.

Stop acting like a big palooka.

Go outside if ya wanna fight ya big palooka!

Who do ya think ya are: Palooka Joe?
