gorets: /gorŽets/, n.

The unknown ur-noun, fill in your own meaning. Found esp. on the Usenet newsgroup alt.gorets, which seems to be a running contest to redefine the word by implication in the funniest and most peculiar way, with the understanding that no definition is ever final. [A correspondent from the former Soviet Union informs me that gorets is Russian for ‘mountain dweller’. Another from France informs me that goret is archaic French for a young pig —ESR] Compare frink.
