noun 
  1. A quick stab or blow
  2. (boxing), a short straight punch (wikipedia:Jab)
  3. A medical injection
  4. In American English, the word is also used when someone is bothering someone else, what is commonly known as verbal jabs. "Don't throw jabs at me" and "Quit jabbing!" are popular sayings. This may be because the verbal annoyances are not substantial attacks, and are similar to a boxing jab in that they are only annoying (not a knockout blow).
verb (jab, b, ed)
  1. To poke or thrust abruptly, or to make such a motion.
  2. To deliver a quick punch.
