    I don't know if farkworthing is a good or a bad thing. Can you supply some context for that word?

    :)

    I think I have found the answer (from the excellent www.onelook.com, which sent me to the wikipedia) It suggests it's not very good.:
    Fark.com
    (Redirected from Fark)

    Fark.com is a website that contains links to humorous, sick, or weird news articles and lets users comment on them. It is a web log, originally created in 1999 by Drew Curtis as a way to share what he considered interesting news postings with his friends instead of sending them numerous annoying emails. Like many on-line communities, Fark.com has its own inside-jokes known as "Farkisms" or "Fark clichés". For example, "Fb- is the father" is often added to any report involving birth or pregnancy. One of these is a clever way of preventing "First Post" messages. They are sent twelve hours into the future (making them one of the last posts), and "First Post" is turned into "Boobies".

    Fark is a euphemism for fuck. Forms of the word include "farking," "farked," "farker."
