Jakes

acronym; verb
Just kidding, never mind
 
First acronymized as JK (for just kidding), jakes is the phonetic pronunciation of the acronym, with some edits. Instead of being “jaykay”, it was changed to “jaykes” (jakes) due to the more accepted way of verbs ending in -ke (as in rake, bake, take, etc) as well as the convenient one syllable pronunciation.
Etymology : Acronymization of “just kidding” followed by the pronunciation of the acronym in verb-accepted form.
