"Why'd you get an F on that essay?"

"I griggs'd the professor's doctoral thesis from her website, and I even cleaned it up for her and told her she should give me an A, but she failed me anyway."

Alternate usage: "For tomorrow's deadline, I'm going to griggs some article from LiveJournal but edit it to remove the humor and interestingness."

To rip someone off and then add insult to injury by charging them money or following with an egregious insult, a la Cook's Source magazine editor Judith Griggs when she plagiarized an article written by Monica Gaudio. When Gaudio contacted Griggs to straighten things out and ask that Judith make a small contribution to a journalism school to make things right, Griggs told her that her article wasn't very good in the first place and that if anything, Gaudio should be paying HER for the editing work she did on her piece.
It was bad enough when he mugged me and stole my purse, but did he have to Griggs me by calling me fat and suing me for fighting back?

Judith Griggs: "But honestly Monica, the web is considered "public domain" and you should be happy we just didn't "lift" your whole article and put someone else's name on it! It happens a lot, clearly more than you are aware of, especially on college campuses, and the workplace. If you took offence and are unhappy, I am sorry, but you as a professional should know that the article we used written by you was in very bad need of editing, and is much better now than was originally. Now it will work well for your portfolio. For that reason, I have a bit of a difficult time with your requests for monetary gain, albeit for such a fine (and very wealthy!) institution. We put some time into rewrites, you should compensate me! I never charge young writers for advice or rewriting poorly written pieces, and have many who write for me... ALWAYS for free!"
