Out of Time, Out of the Muck

"Out of the muck" is derivative poker terminology for off the ground or up to speed (i.e. – "Finally, this game is out of the muck"). Which is odd, because muck refers to the discard pile at a poker table. Maybe it is slightly pejorative, muck, since it also can be used as a verb; to fold. And folding is lame.

a·nach·ro·nism - noun
  1. Something or someone that is not in its correct historical or chronological time.

  2. An error in chronology in which a person, object, event, etc., is assigned a date or period other than the correct one.
