A common word overused by kids in junior high, almost in the same group with "LOL" and "random!". Used to try and impress your preteen friends after or during a long pause between conversations. Also used by idiots whenever there is a pause in speech. Sometimes accompanied by a hand motion resembling a turtle or a turkey.
