Subject: Letterman the linguist?
Of late, David Letterman has been using a word, "gespinkto" (or
"gesfinkto"?), which seems to mean something like "finished," "kaput,"
(it's) "history." Does anyone know if this word has any basis in reality, or
is it just something our gap-toothed goofball from Indiana dreamed up?
