1. A type of wrench used to crank down or unscrew nuts and bolts.

2. The word "wretched" as spelled and pronounced by the uneducated.
1: That girl is hella ratchet!..

2: No. You mean to say she's "wretched". Ratchet is a type of wrench. Another acceptable word you could've used is "skanky" or "whorish."

A Ghettoized form of the word Wretched: very unhappy, ill, etc.: very bad or unpleasant: very poor in quality or ability.

Popularized by American waste-of-space (See: Rapper) Lil' Boosie in his song "Ratchet" in which Boozie, aka Torrence Hatch, describes many of the foul people he encountered in his underprivledged life before being incarcerated for drug possession. He is currently a drain on the American taxpayer.

The term Ratchet is now used in excess by dumb, middle-class, white girls in an attempt to escape their mundane lives by pretending to be in touch with "the Hood". These tween cum stains are under the impression that their generation has, yet again, created something new and hip. Little do they know, the term Ratched is merely the latest example of a high school drop out using a mixture of phonetics and ebonics to create cock-ups of legitimate English words.

These tween morons are exactly the type of nimrod that Lil' Boozie would have tried to sell codeine to outside of the local mall.
Jenny: "OMG, Bianca, isn't that Taylor making out with your ex? That hoe is so ratchet".

Bianca: "Jenny, you're white. Please stop trying to sound like some wretched Ghetto trash and use proper English. Thanks."

1) A ratchet is a mechanical device that allows continuous linear or rotary motion in only one direction while preventing motion in the opposite direction. Though something of a misnomer, "ratchet" is also often used to refer to ratcheting socket wrenches, a common tool with a ratcheting handle.

2) A character in the Transformers franchise. (Seriously?)
1) There is a ratchet in that clock. That means that the clock can't turn the opposite direction...

2) Ratchet can turn into an ambulance at will.

A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.

Typical signs to beware of include, but are not limited to:
-owning a Blackberry
-BLARES anything by Drake, 2Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Cali Swag District, or any other garbage entertainment rapper
-rowdily quotes "lyrics" from aforementioned artists
-has a weave reminiscent of a bird's nest after a tempest hit the tree it was in, and is dyed at least thrice
-wears torn leggings/stalkings (mostly of the fishnet variety), unpolished 8" heels (or higher, depending on how God-awful they look), fitted jean jackets (to accent the blubber 'round their arms and stomach), and 4 layers of caked on make-up to go clubbing
-repeatedly use ludicrous terms such as "YOLO", "swag", "boost", "beaking", "doe", "really", "naw", "actually", "twerk", "coaster", "dagga", etc., to make a valid statement when they speak
-have side bangs, despite having incredibly small-ass foreheads to support them
-are commonly overweight
and are mind-numbingly stupid; a safe assumption to make would be saying they're uneducated (as if they could pass the 4th grade)

If spotted, please report to the authorities, notifying them that they are possible smack addicts, or potential, degenerate Chaka Khan look-alikes.
Imagine a woman that wears skinny clothes, bad looking heels & fishnet stalkings, blasts Drake or Waka off her phone, would go out of her way as to cop CD's from these artists, has a bad hairdo, looks immensely disgusting as a human being, and would rather spend her time maintaining her looks, communicating among her folk, and being a jobless, gold-digging bum for the rest of her days, not even bothering to get herself a good shower, a paying career, and a damned effort to earn a diploma.

That, my comrades, is a prime notoriety of a ratchet.

God help us all.
