BOBFOC


BOBFOC
n
British
a female with an attractive body but an ugly face. A very widespread male pejo-rative. The expression, popular since 2000, has been defined as '...a woman with a great rack and pegs, but a face like a builder'. The letters stand for 'body off Baywatch, face off Crime-watch'. It is pronounced as a word rather than letter by letter. A 2005 review of this dictionary wrongly claimed that the term was an invention by lexicographers. In 2006 an alterna-tive spelling, BOBFOK, was proposed by would-be wits: it stands for 'body of Barbie, face of Ken' (the glamorous doll's square-jawed male consort).
