Etymologies

A jocular misspelling of berserk, used as a recurring joke in the 1970s Australian television series Number 96. (Wiktionary)

Examples

  • I found that the poetry was either wrongly or oddly formatted as is, and if I tried to enlarge the text (OK, my eyes ain't as good as they used to be) the formatting would go skewiff at best, and beresque at worst - in other words, did not handle line breaks, indents and stanza breaks.
