KI’MBO. adj.

KI'MBO. adj.

KI’MBO. adj. [a schembo, Italian.] Crooked; bent; arched.
The kimbo handles seem with bears-foot crv’d,
And never yet to table have been serv’d.  Dryden’s Virgil.
He observed them edging towards one another to whisper;
so that John was forced to sit with his arms a kimbo, to keep
them asunder. Arbuthnot’s History of John Bull.
