    I've noticed in interviews and youtube videos he goes "into character" and this funk lingo comes out. What all is he saying?

    So far the only one I've been able to catch is "Bobble". I'm guessing he's calling a fan bobble, like a precious item.

    Outside bobble, I'm at a loss.

    Actually, it's "bobba," as in "baby bobba."

    It helps to be a funkateer from back in the day to understand "Bootsyese.":D

    Right on. So Bobba is funk for bottle? He used it like it was the name or title of someone. "That was crazy wasn't it bobba?"

    "Bobba" is pretty much synonymous with "baby" in Bootsy's world. As Bootsy himself said in the song Hollywood Squares, "I got a cartoon mind!"
