Yeah, grok isn't something I'm a fan of either. Mostly because in order for someone to really understand the word they have to read Stranger in a Strange Land.

But frubble. Ugh. I tend to use that word in my circle when referring to unrealistic compersion expectations(i.e., if you find out that the SO that you have a house with has met the person of their dreams and is leaving you to be with them. And is taking the house. And the kids. And your dog. A proper response would be, "Well I'm just all frubbly for you!") or when making bad role playing game references to poly("I'm sorry honey, but my frubble is low so I need to get a blue mana potion. ")

Or it is mentioned from time to time on Poly Weekly.
