An amazingly awesome guy with a great music choice and some amazing talent. He is usually very shy and doesn't talk much but once you get to know him you will want to be his closest friend. He is self conscious but doesn't need to be, because he is very handsome and doesn't need to change at all, no matter how much he thinks he does.
Mae: Wow, Burke is such a great guy. I wish he knew how much people care about him.

a very unfortunate surname for those living in the United Kingdom.

Not to be confused with berk which is the cockney slang for cunt. (Short for Berkeley Hunt)
Person 1: Hi, I'm Bri Burke
Person 2: LOL! Berk? You're a cunt!

The literal definition of this word is "to suffocate a person by means which leave no evidence, such as visual bruises and marks." i.e. to suffocate with a pillow or other soft object.
Trevor: "Have you seen Billy?"
Octavia: "No, I haven't. Do you think he's been burked?"
Muffled voice under a pillow: "Trevor, can you assist me in escaping?"
Trevor: "I don't know, did I just hear Billy under that pillow?"
Octavia: *sits on pillow* "No, thtat was just the air conditioning kicking on."

This is a very common and popularized word which comes from the root: beurk.
This phrase is commonly used to replace any insult and is only looked upon in bad context.
It is a word that should only be used if need be, frankly its just not a nice thing to say.
The term can also be altered depending on the situation , such as :
Im going to burke you!

what a f*ckin Burke

Stop Burking like that.

Dont be a burke.

F*ck you, Burke.

You are Burking all over the place...its disgusting.

A fart that squirts out at least 2 ounces of liquid poop caused by WBS, WBS stands for wet butt syndrome, its when sweat leaks into your butt crack and you fart or poop. Poop is worse than a fart, though.

And yes, farkle and burke are related.
AWW MAN!!! I JUST FARTED OUT BURKE!!!
