A corrupted version of the word "owned", this..."word"...has been plagueing internet space since the day some nerd accidently hit the "P" key instead of the "o" to display owned. its definition is unknown, as only the retarded can say it, but it is believed to mean "I have no place in Internet gaming".

Goth: "uh, well because i can, why?"
Preppy: "lyke i hope you dont think it lyke will get you popularrr, because lyke, it doesnt.. it just makes you lyke wierd.. so lyke yeah.."
*goth rolls her eyes and tries to continue walking*
*preppy gets back in goths way*
Preppy: "umm, lyke you need to lyke apologyze for lyke rolling your eyes at me. lyke you cant lyke do that to me, im lyke the most popular girl lyke in this school"
*goth gets close to preppys face*
