    As far as I am aware, there are 3 definitions of boc, the first and perhaps the most often used is;

    Boring Old Codger

    The 2nd definition would instantly be modded/bleeped and would no doubt get me banned from tmp forever, so I won't post it.

    The 3rd is

    The origin of the term goes back to early medieval times when the followers of a well-known king became rather tired of his endless stories about how he could stop the tide coming in.

    So they coined the term 'Boring old Cnut' but in the king's presence were obliged to use the now-familiar acronym 'BOC' in order to preserve their status in court.

    Indeed, the famous ruler's enemies, when catching sight of him, were often heard to say 'Oh no, there's that 'king Cnut again!'

    boc, as well as being a noun, can also be used as a verb ie. "harry bocced sally"

    And don't forget, when being BOCced, you can always play "Pass the BOC" and refer them to a friend stood next to you while you make your escape! :lol:

    I must question your use of the apostrophe there, Steve21.

    Does that make me a MegaBOC?
