Awesome character in the Harry Potter series. She's a metamorphagus (she can change her appearance at will), which is left out in the fifth movie. A LOT of things about her are left out in the movie... grr...
Anyways, in the 7th book she married Remus Lupin. She gets pregnant, but Lupin freaks out and leaves, because he's worried about him passing on some weird werewolf gene or smoething... then he comes back (yay him!) and they have the baby (Teddy!). Then a couple months later they both get KILLED. Dammit...
Tonks's hair is sooo awesome...

Pronoun. Used as a jargon term better Border Patrol Agents to describe someone who is present in the United States illegally. (Exception: Some Dim-witted TCA PA's use the term UDA, even though most TONKS are well documented in IDENT as illegal.)

Term used, primarily by US immigration officials in informal settings, to describe an illegal immigrant of any country. Origins are unknown, but definitely predate the use of metal flashlights, contrary to the most used description of origin. It's probable that the origin is related to Chinese immigration, as the first law to restrict immigration from a particular country was enacted in 1882. It's said that many of the illegal immigrants made their way to the US via the Gulf of Tonkin area of what is now Vietnam. It's also possible that the term is related to the Chinese "tong" mob. The word should be considered only as derogatory as the phrase "illegal alien" as it does not refer to race or even nationality, only to one's immigration status in the United States.
The US Border Patrol Agent caught 3 Honduran tonks, 18 Mexican tonks and a Korean tonk when they tried to sneak across the border this morning.

A slur nickname for illegal aliens from Mexico, originally coming into use by the US border patrol. The name is supposedly derived from the noise that is produced when one hits an illegal immigrant with a mag light.

British slang word for muscular or 'strong-looking'
it has been used to describe girls as hot as well nowadays. It acts as a double for the word 'fit' :)
