stonker

n
British
something stunning, devastating or pow-erful. This invented word should logically be derived from a verb 'to stonk' which is, however, unrecorded in modern slang, although stonkered and stonking are. In origin the term is probably influenced by words such as 'stun', 'clunk' and 'bonk'. See also stonkered
