  • PWNED (verb)

    The word pwned is a misspelling of the word owned. The creator of World of Warcraft attempted to design the game so that when your character died, it says “so and so has been owned” but accidently it was typed out to look like this: “so and so has been pwned” And so started the madness.

    The etymology of the word pwned has become that the “p” is purely and the owned is just owned. Clearly that adds up to purely owned. Examples include :

    “This is to inform everyone that I pwned @ezanee in scrabble. That is all.”

    “LOL you got Pwned in Paint Ball War . Try cover shoot or run and dodge from the paint balls .”

    “never can get enough of england getting pwned :p”

    Other forms of the word pwned are “pwnage”, “pwn”, “pwnocity”, and “pwning.” So go out and use your new knowledge of internet slang but just make sure you don’t get PWNED!!
