what does lick or licked mean?

Seems to come up when someone is responding to an item for sale.
Even tried an Internet slang dictionary - but no listing.

It means the person will take it. I think it refers to the act of licking something so no one else will want it. My brother and I did it with cookies.

Here in the UK, if something has "been licked" then it's done, sorted, finished.


"I've licked that job of changing my clutch"


Obviously Neil will have a slightly different angle on this one.... pics needed!!!

I believe I am the one that started it. I need to locate that thread. But think of it as a plate full of cookies. If I lick one or all of them, you won't want them!

It was a response to my calling dibs on something. I think it is genius and I believe I saw it on another forum once or twice. Jonathan that is by far your greatest contribution to this list

Yeah, it was a joke that started here, I think from a typo. It's our local way of calling dibs, but exact licking etiquette remains un-agreed upon. Licking should be rapidly followed-up, lest someone with a bigger sloppier tongue come along.

no typo, see the thread I linked to. It started when Jonathan got all bent out of shape that I called dibs on a winch Tom posted for sale. I thought I was first in line but Jonathan had already PM'ed the night before. While slightly ruffled by the affair I stand by licking as an acquisition tool.

I'm still waiting to see what Neil's interpretation of this post will result in.

From what I know, the term "licked" is a shortened form of "kitten licked" and refers to an item that has been modified, tweaked, improved, etc. It's basically equivalent to "modded".

Here it means that you want the item... Like when you licked a cookie, so your sister would not eat it.

Good point... But, we do live in the South... Why go down the street, if you can go across the hall...

It has been around for a while. Main-stream too. Remember the ad for Volkswagon when a couple was trying to by a white Jetta but the guy standing next to it licked the door handle? That was years ago and even then it was old. I still like it, though. I used to lick my pop-tarts so my brother wouldn't take them--that was 30 years ago.

I'd like to add that the rule should be that you cannot "lick" an item unless you are willing to purchase at the price at which the seller has listed the item; don't lick and then try to negotiate/haggle a lower price via PM or e-mail.

Definitely unfair to a seller, as well as other potential buyers.

grey area. seller doesn't have to accept the offer. what if it says "obo" in the ad? stop trying to make rules. Just the check the classifieds more often.
