1. Derisive term for the countryside. Often shortened to "the boonies."

2. Comic strip. See The Boondocks.

Boondocks is one of the very few Filipino derived words in English. The original Tagalog word is "bundok" (pronounced like boondock but with the accent on the second syllable). Literally, bundok means "mountain." Even in Tagalog, it is often used as a derisive term for the countryside as well.
