Hah so, enightenment has arived. I had thought it was computer slang for 
something like parse with spent tealeaves in cup.

I suppose "Intelligent" Design (tm god,llc) could be employed to find 
its derivation. A few things come to mind:

grasp -  devine, surmise, acertain, get around it
crock -  a container, unit of measurement; figuratively, a quantity of
          something distasteful of unfortunate proportions
gronk -  the sound hurled by a dinasaur who has just tripped on an extra
          low-hanging testicle
grog - what he uses for the next several hours for recovery
