WTF Is A HOSS?


#1

I'm a non american hence I'm at a loss as to what a "HOSS" is??? Can someone enlighten me please?


#2

In what context is it used?


#3

That pic is a Boss Hoss.

You may be asking about a slang-type version of HORSE which would probably mean BIG, STRONG MAN?


#4

Try www.urbandictionary.com


#5

I've heard it used as describing a big guy, in the same way you would say 'he is a beast'.
I know Hoss was a character from an old show Bananza, and I believe the term comes from a farm animal.

Behold the original HOSS! Uh, he is the one in the middle.


#7

Yes I think thats the one, as in Disc Hoss
Chad "HOSS" Waterbury etc etc.

Thanks guys.You learn something new and pointless every day :wink:
