Johnny: "I didn’t get home from Sammie’s party until 5am!"

Maury: "You’re a regular hoobanger, aren’t you?"

Johnny: "What can I say?  I’m not a chowderhead with bobos."

Hoobanger is a common term in Boston for someone that takes partying to the extreme.  It is unknown where the term originated from.  However, it is believed to have been morphed into its current usage from the word “hooligan”. It has also become interchangeable with the term “Calahooligan”. 

It is referenced in Snoop Dogg’s “Up Jump Tha Boogie”.
