Teenage slang of unknown genesis for realizing what the speaker is talking about, as in, "Du bist so doof. Du checkst nichts." (You're so dumb. You just don't get it.) The term,which occurs in the teen talk on the German soundtrack of Shrek 3, may be derived from the confirmative English expression in two-way radio, "Check!", meaning "I understand." Inflected into a German verb.
