jorum, n \ jo·rum | \ ˈjȯr-əm
A large drinking vessel or its contents
[perh. fr. Joram in the Bible who "brought with him vessels of silver" (2 Samuel 8:10 - King James Version)]
Hence this website is a container of things, no doubt a lot of them concerned with drinking or finding the next place to drink intoxicating substances.
Jorum has been used in other places too, such as in the phrase: "jorum of skee" meaning a shot of liquor. This turned up in "Death's Passport," a Dan Turner story by Robert Leslie Bellem. Published in Spicy Detective in 1940. (Thanks to William Denton for this one, in his page: Twists, Slugs and Roscoes: A Glossary of Hardboiled Slang)
