    Re: Slang Doubt

    This is the only definition of the verb "boob" that I am familiar with: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict...british/boob_3
    "boobed" is the past tense of that verb.

    I know I've boobed when I've made a boo-boo.

    Good point- UrbanDictionary is the best source of slang definitions, but it is also rammed full of irrelevant rubbish, like personal insults against classmates, etc. It should always be read critically.
