Definition

Male version of dented and painted. Appa tucker is a middle aged mad in tight jeans and a slim-fit t-shirt, his hair-dyed while he pretends to be young and fresh. He is also used and damaged mostly because he is over the hill. Instead of embracing his age, he thinks he is still sexy and appealing. Upon graduation from this stage (when the pot belly really bulges from the shirt), he becomes a naughty indian uncle

Usage

Hey, adhoa Poararey avaaru namma ooroo appa tucker! (that man is our town's old dude!)
