= G =
gonk /gonk/ vi.,n.
1. [prob. back-formed from
gonkulator.] To prevaricate or to embellish the truth beyond
any reasonable recognition. In German the term is (mythically)
`gonken'; in Spanish the verb becomes `gonkar'. "You're
gonking me. That story you just told me is a bunch of gonk." In
German, for example, "Du gonkst mich" (You're pulling my leg).
See also gonkulator. 2. [British] To grab some sleep at an
odd time; compare gronk out.
