Glossary: FOB

In trade, it's freight on board. In multcultspeak it's fresh off the boat.
It's an insulting pejorative term, used much in the same way as hick, redneck, and the now archaic "rube".

  1. To modernize this term perhaps we could add F.O.P. for fresh off the plane? For Mexicans we could make it F.O.F. for fresh over the fence.
