The many meanings of Pookie

I call my man pookie, he calls me pookie. Al Bundy called Peg pookie. Chris Rock was a crackhead named pookie in New Jack City. Obama has a mysterious cousin pookie ...(and and uncle jethro). I really hope pookie doesnt become a bad word, then whatever shall i call my pookie?

Sorry, Si, but 'Pookie" has long been a poh-leese term for your average street thug. When interrogated many defer to their street- or nick-name, and Pookie seems to be much in vogue. Your nice guy Jeff ain't no pookie in the common patois of the street, sorry.
