Definition

Used by Bongs, specifically people who migrated from erstwhile East Bengal (known as Bangals) to refer to the native West Bengal population. Slightly derogatory connotation - East Bengal was the center of Bengali culture and literature prior to independence/separation, and the ghotis were considered less cultured, literate and refined.

Usage

Dibyendu: Can you believe that guy? He wears a bloody lungi to the market. Must be a ghoti.

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

Kamla: Did you hear about Vimla? She totally buys her clothes at Walmart!
Sheila: She is suuuuch an FOB yaar! Target is sooo much cooler!
