Bear with me, this may be a stupid question...

Can someone please tell me what the hell "p-owned" is?

Here's hoping I spelled it rite... ;)

Gamer-talk for complete dominating and embarassing someone- most often used in First Person Shooters. Started with "owned" and envolved from there.

I am sure a few pictures with it photoshopped on should be arriving shortly.

I never got all that hipster lingo either. Pretty sure it's just a geek way of saying the newest catchphrase "owned".

So it's actually pronounced PEE-owned?

This is all fascinating boy stuff to me.

couldn't they spell it right or did the tech they were using limit the use of the proper letters?

// I can spell "boobless" on a calculator.

Does that mean the P stands for something else... like when we politely say that someone is p-whipped?

Actually its "pwn3d!1!!"
Its still pronounced "owned". Its the hackers font. Substituting letters for other letters that contain similar shapes.

Here's a good example of its use, as taken from Urban Dictionary:

retard1: pwned originated with quake
retard2 no it started with warcraft
nonretard: Its a ****ing typo, like 'teh'or 'pron'. I you were older than 11 you'd know typos happened even before 1337 made tham 'cool'.
otherguy:you [edit] just got pwned!
