Pronk. Yes it is a word Very Happy

A pronk is a weak or foolish individual, like these dumb criminals who got themselves caught. It is also used as a verb, when referring to antelope and similar animals, that means to leap with an arched back and stiff legs as a form of display or a sign it is threatened.
