Default What Exactly is the Definition of Sick?

I tend to doubt it's this:

Sick Robert Griffin III RG3 Rookie Topps 2012 | eBay

Anyone?

It's when you don't feel well. Often it's also associated with ralphing or the green apple splatters.

in this case the seller may be a homer as the only thing that seems to "pop" here is the crotch.

I still can't figure out how sick has turned into the go to word to use in this industry for a good pull. It basically means the opposite.

I think Topps started it. I've seen their facebook posts where they mention how "sick" cards are.

Yes, sick, filthy, I've seen morons use disgusting as a word.

It's pathetic if you ask me. But I laugh even harder when it's a common insert that is "sick."

It all depends on if you follow Merriam-Webster or Oxford. I personally feel Merriam-Webster is the more complete tome.

Sick[1] - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Definition of SICK
1
a (1) : affected with disease or ill health : ailing (2) : of, relating to, or intended for use in sickness <sick pay> <a sick ward> b : queasy, nauseated <sick to one's stomach> <was sick in the car> c : undergoing menstruation
2
: spiritually or morally unsound or corrupt
3
a : sickened by strong emotion <sick with fear> <worried sick> b : having a strong distaste from surfeit : satiated <sick of flattery> c : filled with disgust or chagrin <gossip makes me sick> d : depressed and longing for something <sick for one's home>
4
a : mentally or emotionally unsound or disordered : morbid <sick thoughts> b : highly distasteful : macabre, sadistic <sick jokes> <a sick crime>
5
: lacking vigor : sickly: as a : badly outclassed <made the competition look sick> b : incapable of producing profitable yields of a crop <sick soils>

Definition of sick - Oxford Dictionaries (US English)

adjective

1affected by physical or mental illness: nursing very sick children we were sick with bronchitis (as plural noun the sick) visiting the sick and the elderly
of or relating to those who are ill: the company organized a sick fund for its workers
(of an organization, system, or society) suffering from serious problems, especially of a financial nature: their economy remains sick
archaic pining or longing for someone or something: he was sick for a sight of her

2 [predic.] feeling nauseous and wanting to vomit: he was starting to feel sick Mark felt sick with fear
[attributive] (of an emotion) so intense as to cause one to feel unwell or nauseous: he had a sick fear of returning
informal disappointed, mortified, or miserable: he looked pretty sick at that, but he eventually agreed

3 [predic.] (sick of) intensely annoyed with or bored by (someone or something) as a result of having had too much of them: I’m absolutely sick of your moods

4 informal (especially of humor) having something unpleasant such as death, illness, or misfortune as its subject and dealing with it in an offensive way: this was someone’s idea of a sick joke
(of a person) having abnormal or unnatural tendencies; perverted: he is a deeply sick man from whom society needs to be protected

5 informal excellent: it was a sick party and there were tons of cool people there

It's a total generation gap kind of thing. It's pathetic, more and more young people using "sick" "dirty" "filthy" as the new cool.
