Gorn

From HypertWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

gorn adj.: Gone. Reference to a Monty Python sketch in which Graham Chapman's character says various words and describes them as either "lovely and woody" or "awful and tinny". "Gorn", the first, was "lovely and woody"; much later, "caribou" was outside nibbling on the croquet hoops. After shooting the caribou with a rifle which he happened to have under his comfy chair, Chapman's character remarks "Caribou gorn."

Notes

  • Always spoken with a pronounced upper-middle-class British accent
  • Not to be confused with The Gorn, an alien race with a very low makeup budget
