Slang of the Day :(14 oct 2017)

✔ Yokel


■ Meaning:

a simple, poorly-educated person from the countryside

■ For example:

  • We used to see whole families of yokels come into town sometimes. They’d be wearing really old clothes, have terrible haircuts, and they’d speak in this weird accent that was hard to understand.
  • Fran’s mother used to say she’d give Fran to the yokels who lived up in the mountains if she was a bad girl.
