    Hello. First off, I must say I am a big fan of the show, only having recently discovered it(in the last six months or so). As far as “jock” is concerned: in high school (90’s), to “be on someone’s jock” meant to steal their style or copy their mannerisms. I believe it actually comes from hip-hop culture, as so many wonderfully colorful terms do. I’m sure I’ve heard it in several songs from the eighties. It has probably evolved from “Dude, get off my jock,” to “Don’t jock me, dude.” In one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes comic strips, Calvin states that he likes to “verb words” and that “verbing wierds language” LQTM

  2. It’s possible that’s the origin, but I can’t verify it.
