    It's a box that you put stuff in. You can strap it to the back of your car when you go on a trip. Holds more than a boot.

    like Jimmy Hoffa?


    of course, this also depends on shoe size... my daughter is around 6' 3" and wears a frunking US mens size 13 1/2

    My daughter also showed me this, so we can add "TurKraken" to the list of new words:

    the US can and regularly does use word "trunk" both ways.
    According to Lexico.com, the use of "trunk" as the boot of a car is typical of North America, but apparently not elsewhere (or not popular elsewhere)
    https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/trunk

    it's just part of the evolution of language ... some of us are bi-lingual though and speak British as well as American English. LFMAO

    is that a modification of "perdition"?

    just wondering: it's actually a really good word, IMHO

    "ethernal": descriptive of relativistic crackpottery that doesn't stop.

    Tesla Cybertruck

    Along with a covered bed with a trunk in the floor and a “frunk” under the hood, each of the rear roof buttresses hides storage compartments beneath butterfly doors.

    Looks like frunk might be frunking on

    It's what the word "fugly" was invented for.
