dank: unpleasantly moist or humid; damp and, often, chilly: a dank cellar.

It seems the word was already taken. Maybe the urbans should stick to words like ginormous.

I reckon in a language where a fat chance and a slim chance means the same thing; where the word 'little" is twice as long as "big"; and that uses the overly long word "abbreviation" to indicate a shortened form of a word, there is likely room for one or two more euphemisms.

dank = awesome as in " The party was dank!".

Dank has evolved in its alternate meaning from the original usage. Check out the Urban Dictionary for full details.

I don't know but if somebody posts a dank recipe I doubt I'll be interested in cooking it.

Great idea! Making rules for the 'urbans' to use when they make up new words. That'll fly.
