    yup.  Janky= messed up, dilapidated, falling apart, retarded, etc.  I often refer to my janky-assed car.

    I used this word today for this very meaning and they all looked at me like I was janky. Well, I guess I’m not the only one.

    I use janky to mean trashy (i.e. very short very tight skirt)

    I was told that janky “is or is like” a politically correct version of ghetto (adj.).  This seems to cover most if not all usages.
