- Usage: “I left my sunglasses on the table for one second and they got jacked.” “If you take steroids then you’ll be totally jacked.”
Definition: (1) verb: stolen or taken, (2) adjective: describe a great muscular physique Jacked Origin: I’ve heard this term as early as September of 2001 within the halls of my high school. Two differnt types of meaning have branched out from two differnet original extensions of the term. As a verb ‘jacked’ can come to literally mean stolen or taken deriving directly from the word ‘high-jacked’ through a clipping. The second innovation stems from the noun jack which is used to ‘jack-up’ a car and that same sense of “upness” is connected to building muscles or strength.
