Definition

At any Goan bakery, the oft-chanted mantra is - "maka pao dhya" (Gimme some pao bread)...Goans carried the same to Bombay, out of sheer habit, asking the baker to give them the pao-bread! Over time, it shortened itself to makapao, denoting a Goan Christian usually. Further shortened to Mac.

Usage

That makapao thinks he is a body builder only! One fighter punch I'll give him...

and

That Sandra from Bandra will go out with a mac only, no. What men! Aaks, no?!
