Gorko beat reporter Beat Porter approached unlikely-looking teenagers this week at the mall and asked them to explain a jalopy, as in define the word and use it in a sentence.
TAMMY, AGE 16
Yeah it is like some kind of racing car, fancy car. Maybe like Formula 1 cars is a jalopy? The jalopy has some real verve.
AQIB, AGE 17
Jalopy, jalopy. It is some kind of citrus drink. Yeah I’d like a tall jalopy and a chili dog.
BART HANSON, AGE 29
I am not a teenager, I told you, but fine. A jalopy is a word for jumping on a dude and beating him down. My god what happened to you, Darren? They surprised me behind the gym and jalopied me all the way to next Tuesday.
