This word is most widely believed to have been taken from the french. (Admittedly, our only evidence is the little accent mark. -Ed.)

Ex: "John listen to me- she liked you. You had her, man! But I told you earlier this evening, she's got a wildcat in her cranium. She want's to talk about the stuff that hasnt even hit the magazines. The production of throat vodka via mid-tracheal gamma scan collection is tipuét! You may as well have said 'I heard there's a sale at The Gap.' Don't be too down though- i still think your eventual trist is teep.*"

       aka "Baked," though I guess that only works here. I live for the day when I hear another person refer to another person's idea as "baked" in a real conversation.   

       Also, I don't like it when people forget what abbreviations mean. If you say "so-and-so is tipuet" you're saying "so and so is this is possible under existing technology," a sentence that makes me want to end your existence with some existing technology.
