Apocrypha means 'hidden things' in Greek. The Apocryphical books of the Bible fall into two categories: texts which were included in some canonical version of the Bible at some point, and other texts of a Biblical nature which have never been canonical.

THEN God, merciful and gracious, looked upon them thus lying in the water, and nigh unto death, and sent an angel, who brought them out of the water, and laid them on the seashore as dead.

2 Then the angel went up to God, was welcome, and said, "O God, Thy creatures have breathed their last."

3 Then God sent His Word unto Adam and Eve, who raised them from their death.

(Adam and Eve died MANY times folks)

Taken in the contest of the song Baby's Got Back by Sir-Mix-Alot he is referring to Florence Griffith Joyner a track athlete in the 1988 Olympics who defiantly fits all the other descriptions of what he likes in women mentioned in that song.

Greek for 'hidden things'. Slang term derived from the Apocryphical Books of the Bible. In daily speech, "Apocrypha" and "apocryphal" means something that is not canonical, something that doesn't really count. Often used by comic book or tv-show geeks.
No, no -- Spock never visited Never-Never Land in current Star Trek continuity. That episode is totally apocryphal.

(Note that the example itself is apocryphal and not taken from neither the real world nor Star Trek lore.)
