look up any word, like hipster:
 
1.
A misheard word in a sentence or piece of dialogue between two or more people.
A:"I went to Steves house last night and it stank."
B:"EH ? What?"
A:"I said, I went to Steve's house last night and it stank."
B:"Oh, I thought you said I went to Steve's house last night and it's a tank"

Therefore person B misheard it stank, thinking person A described Steve's house as Military Hardware. "It's a tank" became the gingword
