The act of trapping someone in a circle of people
who then push him/her around within the circle as violently as possible, sort of like a circle of death. Particularly
is drunk. Gets its name from the fact that the person in the middle
of the circle often gets well and truly merked
. Punching, kicking, scratching, headbutting and biting are often part and parcel of a merkle
Mother: Oh my god Perry what happened to you? You've got a bloody nose and a patch
has been ripped off your crown!
Perry: I got merkle circled three
times at school today. The third time, in the changing rooms, I was butt naked.
Performing a merkle circle
on unsuspecting victims
is a favourite
hobby of many immature chavs.
