Definition

Fresh Off the Boat - literally, a recent migrant to Western shores. Generally refers to someone who is not culturally integrated in the US/UK, speaks with a distinct desi accent, does not understand terms like "punt", "third and long", and thinks Budweiser truly is the "King of Beers" (and not horsepiss like truly integrated ABCDs).

Usage
