Created by a Northern Virginian in the late 1970s by combining tired and horked to create a word that means exasperated, exhausted, frustrated, and annoyed. Word was created as part of a class project to create new or combination words in the same manner as those found in the Jabberwocky poem.

The phrase caught on and spread throughout several Northern VA schools in the late 70s and early 80s. Frequent relocation of people to and from the area is the probable cause of the continued spread of the phrase. The phrase, by the early 80s, had evolved to generally mean mad or angry - not necessarily exasperated and tired. Popular variation in the 80s was "totally torked".

Possible variation or parallel development is "I am torqued" which is based upon "torqued" which means something that that is twisted, possibly to the point of being under stress though over tightening.
"I'm totally torked. I had to listen to him drone on for over 10 minutes about something totally irrelevant."

A person's eyes when that person is lying because the eyes take on that "look" that can only found in lying eyes (regardless of what is coming out of their mouth). Most people have two, some people only have one. Some people, like pathological liars, have none at all. You can't hide lieballs. They'll always give you away. Easiest to notice on someone you know very well.
I knew he was cheating. When I asked Steve what was going on, he said that nothing was wrong, but his lieballs gave him away. Two days later he admitted that he started staring dating someone else two weeks ago. I knew it! Bastard.

When confronting the person, this is a typcial phrase, "don't try to fool me, your lieballs are giving you away."

A moron who is full of shit. Usually someone who professes to be an expert at everything, but in reality 1) knows very little, 2) has completely incorrect information, or 3) knows of nothing of interest to others (drivel). However, regardless of their lack of knowledge or of pertinent information, they feel compelled to talk ad nauseam about their selected topics. They usually find themselves to be an expert at just about everything.
"You are totally full of crap, you shitron." "Don't listen to Bob, he's a shitron, everything he'll tell you is wrong."
