    I was cooked

    What does "I was cooked" means?

    Complete sentence: I was cooked to pick side A.

    Does that means he was predisposed to pick side A ?



    Thanks

    Re: I was cooked

    It doesn't mean anything to me. Where did you find it?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: I was cooked

    My guess is that it might have been used in the sense of "deceived".

    Re: I was cooked

    I am not a teacher.

    Another guess would be that 'cooked' means 'intoxicated' or 'drunk'.

    Re: I was cooked

    'Baked' is slang for being high on marijuana, but I haven't heard 'cooked' used this way. However, like Roman, that would be my guess as to that person was trying to say.

    Edit: When you cite the source, it appears that you said this to the Customs officer yourself, so why are you asking us what you meant?

    Edit #2: In certain limited contexts, it could be used to mean you're sunburned or feeling the effects of heat exhaustion.
