What Is A Jukebox?

As defined...

JUKEBOX:  Electrically operated, nickel-in-the-slot music box.

JUKE:  To mess around; wicked, disorderly.  Associated with anything connected with a place of ill repute; a juke house (sometimes just a juke) is a disorderly house; once a whorehouse, now called a cathouse or canhouse.  (circa 1950's)

JUKE:  A dialect called GULLAH used by African-Americans living on the islands lying off the coast 
of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, whose ancestral tribes came from Senegal, French West Africa.

JUKING:  To tour roadside bars, usually with one of the opposite sex; to drive to one roadside bar, 
drink a little and perhaps dance a little, leave and go to another, and continue in this manner for an 
entire evening.  Sometimes you just stop to drink .... and sometimes you stop drinking and driving and 
go to a tourist cabin (with a "companion").
