Your answer could be improved if you explained why you think hobnob is a good fit.

comment Does 'twink' imply a specific sexuality?
I'm wondering the same thing now. Is twink something that describes a particular stereotype of a group of gay men, or is it used by the gay community to describe a particular physical stereotype that some men are attracted to?

comment Meaning of “black on black” in Nickelback's “Animals”
Yes, I think so too. "I'm driving [a] black-on-black [vehicle]" with the implied additional poetry of driving a black car in a black mood on a black night.

comment Why some blade is called “beaver blade”
Yes, a blade is long, flat, and sharp and describes that part of the knife (not the handle). Blades are often sold separately from handles for things like surgical instruments because the blades are replaced rather than sharpened.

comment Why some blade is called “beaver blade”
Beaver and Diamond are both brand names for surgical blades. It may be confusing because there are also such things as 'diamond blades' that are sawblades used for tile, stone, metal, etc. and the brand of Beaver sawblades like the one pictured above are a brand for wood-cutting saw blades. This Beaver brand is not the same as the surgical brand.

comment Why does binomial nomenclature seem to break case rules?
@Oldcat I thought the same thing initially, but upon further reflection realized that it doesn't really answer the question. We don't capitalize cat. It's not a proper noun. But Felis domesticus is capitalized. Why would the scientific designation suddenly make it a proper name? How does "My cat purred" differ from "My Felis domesticus purred"?

This is better, but you still haven't told us what you think it means and why you aren't sure if you are right.

Hi Fahad. Please edit your question to include where you heard this, what you think it means, and why you're not sure if you're right. That will give us the information we need to answer your question.
