Caved and boob

Hello, Amy. The other day I watched one episode of Josh & Drake & in the episode “The bet” said when they both lost the bet: ” you both caved it” (meaning that they both failed to abide by the conditions of the bet”. Is this the right spelling and usage to describe this? I didn’t find this meaning of “to cave” in the dictionary? Is it old-fashioned or is it common?


Also, they use the word “bood” to mean “dork” a lot. Is it common?

Hi! I have to say, I have never heard the expression “caved” used in this context. Usually “to cave” means to give in, as in, “At first I told my sister she couldn’t borrow my car, but I finally caved and let her take it.”


“Boob” is sometimes used to mean dork or dummy. It’s not especially common and sounds a bit silly or old-fashioned, but its meaning is definitely well-known.
