Looks more like Wikihow to me. Plus, the author neglects to mention how cowardice and screaming can be added to transmogrify it into peanuts and caramel corn.--67.101.36.52 08:38, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

A zonk is a cannabis joint rolled in a perticular way to induce "Zonk".

Noun: "An unfavorable card or token, or undesirable or worthless item in any of several games or game shows (such as Let's Make a Deal)." And verb: "To give an undesirable or worthless item to." Equinox 18:36, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

I've added five cites for the noun. Most of them aren't really natural flowing use of "zonk", but together I think they make a case.--Prosfilaes (talk) 03:09, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

The 2006 and 2008 citations are good, actually. The 2004 one is a mention; the 2003 and 2009 ones use the term in quotation marks, but taken together they may make a case for it, as Prosfilaes says. Can anyone find a really good third citation? - -sche (discuss) 03:32, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Both 2006 and 2008 are in the context of just Let's Make a Deal, though; they don't really show that it's used outside that one gameshow. I'd call the 2004 one an indirect quotation, instead of a mention.--Prosfilaes (talk) 06:18, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
I've added two citations and expanded the definition to match the On My Honor citation. I think this should be solid now. --BB12 (talk) 06:43, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Great work, Prosfilaes, BB and Spinningspark! RFV-passed. - -sche (discuss) 04:15, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
