Default The meaning of bodunk!

I recently saw the word "bodunk" appear in a cruisemate email. The sentence read: "That's all bodunk!"

Being curious I checked the an online dictionery, and got the following response concerning the definition of "bodunk" from the Merriam webster dictionery. "The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary. Click on a spelling suggestion below or try again using the search bar above." I did and I got the word "podunk." I must say I was taken aback. A word that doesn't exist. A misspelling possibly podunk seemed to be the closest spelling I could find on the online dictionery.

I next checked what I consider a very unscholary and poor source for word definitions: the Urban Dictionery. The reason I feel this way is that the definitions are contributed by people who can then put whatever meaning on the words that they want. The definitions i got follow.

Definition 1. Defining any hick place, town, or location in rural America. Also an adjective used to describe anything shoddy and cheap.

Definition 2. A really ****** or stupid place or thing.

That is one bodunk little town.

I noted that they are very dated. Does anyone know if there is an up-to-date meaning for the word bodunk.
