I dont like getting borked, I like doing the borking, if you dont have anything nice to say, go bork yourself!

Admins- I know this has nothing to do with the Z but I wasnt going to put it under "off topic lounge", I wanted it read!

bork
–verb (used with object)

to attack (a candidate or public figure) systematically, esp. in the media.

Origin: 1988, Americanism; after Judge Robert H. Bork, whose appointment to the Supreme Court was blocked in 1987 after an extensive media campaign by his opponents


Basically the techies have picked up this word as a replacement to 'foobar' in referencing something that's f'd up.

According to urban dictionary: "The term "Borked" or "Borking" originated with conservative talk show hosts (primarily Rush Limbaugh) to describe someone who is denied something earned simply because they either aren't politically correct enough or aren't trusted - usually without cause. The usage is derived from Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork who though eminently qualified was deemed too "conservative" to serve as a Supreme Court judge."

Guys, thanks for the literal definition. How do I un-bork the clips? I cant even follow the links, they are just "borked".
