Get Yolked Without The Yolk!
Etymology : The word yolked is a combination of yolk and the suffix -ed. The zero derivation completely changes the meaning from pertaining to yellow part of eggs to the muscles of a human being. The connection between yolk meaning yellow or the yellow part of eggs and this current meaning is unclear. However, a possible connection is drinking of egg yolks by bodybuilders in order to obtain protein for muscle building.
