thewordnerd commented on the word janky
C/o Urban Dictionary:
1.(adjective) inferior quality; held in low social regard; old and dilapidated; refers almost exclusively to inanimate material objects, not to people
We tried to pick up on these girls waiting for the bus, but I was driving my sister's janky 1989 geo metro so we just got clowned instead.
2. Poorly constructed or of poor quality
This janky shirt she gave me is falling apart.
3. adjective used to describe a person, place or thing which is questionable, fucked up, wrong, strange, broken down, undesirable, and/or just some thing you can't think of another word for. The origin of this work is explained somewhat in the conversation example. Friends and I were sitting around drinking coffee one morning, and I was bitching about my empty cup when my friend blamed the lack of coffee on the "janky ass coffee maker." I have since heard the word in the movie Friday.
Other forms: janked, janked up, janked out,
I was dancing with my friends and some janky old mutherfucker came up to me and started grabbin' my ass!
Michelle: yo, when's that coffee going to be ready?
Crystal: I don't know. This janky ass coffee maker takes forever.
He was a weirdo and made me feel all janked out, so I left.
I didn't get into Harvard. I don't know what I'm going to do now - it's totally janked up.
