Origin of slang "redonk" (short for "redonkulous") meaning "ridiculous"

The title is pretty much the question. I've heard this term orally for maybe 2 years. I saw it for the first time in print on another message board about a month ago. Can't say "redonk" is ubiquitous just yet ... but I'm wondering whether it's part of some very recent pop culture that I may have missed.
