    comic books question #4

    In the sentence below, what do the bolded words mean?

    I have much better things to do today than play tag with this nosey eight-ball.

    Used in this sense, an "eight-ball" means a misfit or a trouble maker. It refers to the game of pool, when sinking the 8 ball in a pocket causes a player to lose the game.
