Definition of Orc



  • This definition is questionable and is pending deletion. It will be saved from deletion if legitimate citations are found.

    Denoting an individual who excessively uses the phrase "I'm gonna need a bigger boat" or "We're gonna need a bigger boat" as a metaphor for every situation that denotes overwhelming odds, or an overwhelming scenario.

    This is in reference to the 1975 blockbuster film 'JAWS' and the name of the boat 'ORCA' which is confronted by a 25 foot shark. Typically a fan of the film and one who admires the boat can be called an Orc.

    Hey, I noticed Ted keeps saying "We're gonna need a bigger boat" every time we lose a game. Ted must be an Orc.
