This is a conversation from a sitcom I saw today,.Here is the scene, there is this woman and her boyfriend having sex on the kitchen floor, and then ...
the woman:Did you notice there's a Pop-Tart under your fridge?
the man:No, but dibs.
But dibs, what's that supposed to mean?

@Adverb,
It basically means, No, but it's mine now, i want it.
From what i've learnt about "pop-tarts" on this site, it's not worth dibsing.

@AbbieMcKenley,
after you heat it up, total dibs are worth being.

Also How I Met Your Mother is a great show Adverb. Keep watching it.

@Adverb,
Yup, that's right. To 'take dibs' on something basically means to claim prior rights. It doesn't mean he'll eat the whole pop-tart; he may share it. He's just claiming a right to at least a portion of it.

@Adverb,
The man is almost certainly being funny/sarcastic when he puts dibs on the pop tart. Like he's interested in eating an old pop tart that has been lying under the fridge.

Groooady.
