: : hi guys im not familiar with some words eh...can you please tell me what smoochie boochie means........

: : thanks...

: OK, I'll take a guess. "Smooch" is slang for "kiss". And I'll bet "boochie" comes from the Italian word "boccia", meaning "mouth". So "smoochie boochie" would seem to be a playful way of saying "a kiss on the mouth". Sounds like a Louie Prima song.

Recently that phrase has become trendy because of Jason Mewes, better known as Jay of "Jay and Silent Bob", Kevin Smith's characters popularized by films such as "Clerks" and "Mallrats". In "An evening with Kevin Smith, I think Kevin refers specifically to that phrase, and claims that it is just gibberish that Jason Mewes often speaks. Jason Mewes was a New Jersey village idiot until his antics were made famous by his friend Kevin. Though it's possible Jason picked up the phrase elsewhere, it's also entirely possible he made it up, and it has no real meaning.
