A friend in grad school used to go around the office and exhort us to 'go eat' lunch together. Eventually this just became "gweet."

Similarly, an engineer I worked with would build applications using java jars built by another part of our company. I would ask him how his project was going after the jar update and he would invariably say "It's broke." Over time, this elided into 'sproke.

*True story: One Christmas, I bought everyone a computer bag with NPE embroidered on it because everything was 'sproke.
