caught in a situation that has no obvious solution
We are kind of hooped because the guy to interview you doesn't come in to work for another two hours.
Screwed. An uncomfortable situation. In a bad situation that seems to have no way out. Comes from one of two meanings:
1) To have figuratively taken it up the ass (the hoop).
2) railway terminology where new (additional) work orders were passed along to a train crew. The orders were printed on paper, tied with string, and held up high on the end of a pole. The string had a loop for the trainman to lean out of the window of a moving train and aim his arm through the loop (hoop) to get the orders.
"How you gonna explain that to your wife?"
"I dunno man, I'm hooped."
Yardmaster: "Theres more work for you down the line."
Conductor:"Damn, Why can't we tie up and go home?"
Yardmaster: "I got the orders from above. I'll hoop them up to you."
Trainman to Conductor after grabbing order successfully: "We're hooped"
To describe the act of concealment inside a human anus. Originating in Scotland due to the term hoop being used to describes ones anal ringpiece.
"How did u get that hash here from Finland?"
"I hooped it!"
Can't be bothered, Can't be assed
As hoop is a slang for your ass, instead of "can't be assed" you "can't be hooped"

when someone steals your rims or wheels.
