jay(redirected from Jays)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Acronyms, Encyclopedia.
To walk across a street outside of a marked crosswalk or without regard for traffic rules. (A "jay" is a dated term for a foolish or naïve person.) Come on, the crosswalk is right here—there's no excuse for jaywalking. A: "Can you believe that cop just wrote me up for jaywalking? Unbelievable!" B: "Of course he ticketed you—you stepped right out in front of traffic!"
slang A police officer, or the police in general. I can't even walk down the street these days without Peter Jay hassling me for no damn reason!
slang Narcotics, especially heroin. Pig Latin for "junk." Hey, pal. Looking to buy a little unk-jay? I have a feeling Tim's back on the unk-jay, judging by the glassy, vacant look in his eyes.
slang A vagina. The term was popularized after being used on a 2006 episode of the TV show Grey's Anatomy, whose writers chose it due to censors' objection to multiple instances of the word "vagina." I'd really rather not have to talk about my vajayjay in front of your parents, so let's not bring up the birthing class.
