= C =
cow orker n.
[Usenet] n. fortuitous typo for co-worker,
widely used in Usenet, with perhaps a hint that orking cows is
illegal. This term was popularized by Scott Adams (the creator of
Dilbert) but already appears in the January 1996 version of
the scary devil monastery FAQ. There are plausible reports
that it was in use on talk.bizarre as early as 1992. Compare
hing, grilf, filk, newsfroup.
