Pwned is a former typo of Ownd which has developed into the geek talk for "Ultimate ass kicking"

Example: Dolph kicks a guy in the face: "Dolph just owned that guy!"
Dolph puts a shotgun point blank to a guy's face and pull's the trigger: "Dolph just pwned that guy!"

This has been your Otaku lesson for today... next time: what the hell does Otaku mean?

I know what an Otaku is, and I have learned quite some geeky lingo when I was in LA for 2 years but have never heard of that ("owned" maybe but "pwned"?!... that really sounds retarded :) ...)

Like I said, it was originally a typo... something to do with WoW, and it just sort of took off I guess.

I heard the same story about the origins of "pwned" as the Canadian, except that it started in Counter Strike.
I´ll Wiki it right now.
