Check

A coded word that brings attention to the fact that someone in the vicinity is making a move on the opposite sex (without being obvious). The move being made may be overt, subtle, physical, firting etc. Checks are usually done to embarrass the parties involved.

Advanced users may make a more complex coding system such as check-plus, check-minus, j-check, s-check etc which may be user defned.

When Jay saw Frank talking up the hot new professor, he shouted, «Check!»

As in «You’re right.» Or, «I agree with that.» Used with a hand signal where you make a check mark in the air with your index fnger. The more you agree, the bigger and more exaggerated the hand signal. Can almost be used without saying the actual word, just the signal itself.

Coretta: «That girl over there is a skanky hobag.»

Jeanetta: (While making a check mark in the air with her fnger) «Check!»

When you are so fat that your chin and your neck converge into one.

Man, look at the Check on that no-neck fatty!
