    Hey guys, I never knew this and I found it interesting. Hope you enjoy:

    A corruption of the word "Owned." This originated in an online game called Warcraft, where a map designer misspelled "owned." When the computer beat a player, it was supposed to say, so-and-so "has been owned."

    Instead, it said, so-and-so "has been pwned."

    It basically means "to own" or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force.
    "Man, I rock at my job, but I still got a bad evaluation. I was pwned."

    OR

    "That team totally pwned us."
    "Their most trivial action may mean volumes, or their most extraordinary conduct may depend upon a hairpin or a pair of curling-tongs" - Holmes

    pwned
    A Definition in the Urban dictionary, that every useless retard and his dog, has decided to add multiple definitions for (even tho its the same f*&king definition).

    YOU'RE NOT FUNNY, the first one is the best, and the rest are cheap copies
    "all the tards who added in definitions directly related to the first definition, just got pwned

    Suggestion submitted with Request to Delete: "Instead of being a cry baby bitch, he should have recommended the other definitions for deletion."

    also. all of the definitions on the net are wrong. Pwned is actually derived from the name of Lee Jeong Pwn, a legendary Korean gamer who could press 52 keys per second on his keyboard. it goes without saying that he was a fierce warrior in everything from Counter-Strike to Starcraft to The Sims House Party.
