Jive - what does it mean?

Fool: "Ima jive turkey"
Me: "I believe you"
Adjective: ridiculous, superfluous, unnecessary, or foolish.
Generally a description paired with turkey, but any combination is acceptable.
Why you gotta be trippin'? Jive white ass turkey.
Colorful form of speaking. Sometimes hard to follow.

Cab Calloway produced some "hepster dictionaries" in the form of free booklets given away with his recordings of the time.
2)A partner dance from the 1950s based upon a 6-count pattern. A rather simplistic descendent of the more complex and exciting Lindy Hop. Danced to rockabilly, early rhythm 'n' blues, rock 'n' roll and sometimes swing, although Lindy is the preferred dance.
1) first chap~ Get off the fence Hortense! Dig those real gone gates! They totally send me!
