In youth slang 'tronk' can mean internet plagiarist, large girl or (quote) 'trollop skank'. I seem to remember it also being used in Italian adult comics as imitative of the sound of vigorous copulation.

What a forgettable and mildly confusing name. If I came across it for the first (or fifth) time, I would assume it was a French luggage company, or maybe had something to do with elephants.

I couldn't help but think of your post when I saw John Oliver's piece about journalism and tronc :).
