Skip to comments.Freeper Lingo Thread (the history and meening of 'Freepisms' including pictures)
Posted on 08/24/2006 9:32:06 AM PDT by batterEdited on 08/24/2006 9:51:10 AM PDT by Admin Moderator. [history]
Every once in a while I see Freeper lingo I don't understand and have to research to figure out the meaning/background.
Today, I thought it would be helpful for newbies (and 'seasoned' Freepers) to have a 'reference' for the lingo specifically related to FR (ie not stuff like LOL etc you can get everywhere else).
My intention is for this thread (and my profile page) to be that reference, in as much as it can be kept reasonably up to date.
I've just started to compile the terms today, so I'm sure there are massive gaps and omissions in the definitions/histories. Please fill them in!
Here's what I have right now:
IBTZ - In Before The Zot - term posted before the troll/disrupter gets booted
Zot - verb, to get kicked off FR in an undignified manner
Mod comment: See Coop's post #52 for correct definition of "Zot"
beeber (beeber like object) - see the thread that started it all: Would like freeper help (apologies to al baby)
stuned - misspelling of stunned - see beeber
hugh - misspelling of huge posted on a thread by an excited freeper.
series - misspelling of serious posted on a thread by an excited freeper.
BIOYAC - Texan freepism - Blow It Out Your A**, Cowboy
shower pictures - from an excited freeper saying they just got out of the shower on a breaking news thread about a possible terror event (it was determined the event was not terror related).
DUmmie (anything DU---) - Democratic Underground troll/disruptor
cowbell pictures - ??
ziggy - ??
spork weasel - ??
Those were some interesting days.... CAL was so sure sneaky was a disrupter and he was banned before he could respond back on the thread. She even used his online moniker as a way to trash him. sneakypete was reinstated but later on he was banned again or he left. He was posting on some of the other forums but I've not seen his moniker lately but then I've not looked either. I wish those threads were available online today.
Some interesting threads with Don Morgan and the 'Ash Alert'. Then there were the threads when Lucianne, Drudge and the others left to go start Lucianne.com.
Good evening and the very best to you and yours.

My all time favorite FR threads (stuned beepers was already mentioned):
Post Your Girlyman Kerry Photos Here:
High Rise Fire in Dowtown Chicago ("very series")
The loin that sqeaked
Anyone have the original "caption this picture" thread of John Kerry in the spermman outfit? That was truly the funniest thread I've ever been apart of but I never bookmarked it.
Yes. A lot of people.
What a shame most of the girly man photos are no longer there, that was one of the first threads I bookmarked, and the funniest one I ever saw...
and there are lots of funny threads here, but that one was the best, kerry is a total dork
This is used as a place keeper and/or to keep a thread moving, so that it doesn't languish and die, from lack of posting replies to; especially in the dead of night.
...and little flattening out.
How about pajamahadeen?
OMG..............what a trip down memory lane, reading these two links were. Many thanks for posting them! :-)
