  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  gorets  /gor'ets/  n.  The  unknown  ur-noun,  fill  in  your  own 
  meaning.  Found  esp.  on  the  Usenet  newsgroup  alt.gorets,  which  seems  to 
  be  a  running  contest  to  redefine  the  word  by  implication  in  the  funniest 
  and  most  peculiar  way  with  the  understanding  that  no  definition  is  ever 
  final.  [A  correspondent  from  the  Former  Soviet  Union  informs  me  that 
  `gorets'  is  Russian  for  `mountain  dweller'.  Another  from  France  informs 
  me  that  `goret'  is  archaic  French  for  a  young  pig  --ESR]  Compare  {frink}.
