Never heard that term before...I assume it's the same thing as "F'd in the A" (Cartman Quote)

That was brilliant. I just might have to rent it and watch the whole thing.

I actually rented and watched A Scanner Darkly yesterday and just had a big laugh over the whole stoner-buying a "hot" bike and thinking he got "greeked" thing! The whole movie is very good - a recommended watch!

Good to hear, I loved the book and think that Linklater is a pretty good director but am not a fan of Keanu so have been hesitant - guess I'll go rent it.
