adj. Kiboshed.

Related term: beyoinked.

Real citation: "Meanwhile Odysseus’ job (I swear to god) is to follow behind Diomedes and grab the newly bewhacked dead guys by the feet and drag them out of the way so as to make a neat little path for the horses."
("Reading the Iliad,"

Made-up citation: "If you think 'bewhacked' is an out-there word, check the OED, where I just found the even more out-there and delightful 'be-pamphletise,' 'beflounced,' 'be-belzebubbed,' and 'be-Frenchman'd.'"
