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 - ??
Can't forget the Undead Thread...
YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary
FWIW = For What It's Worth
IANAL = I Am Not A Lawyer
HAND = Have A Nice Day
LOL I was just teasing...the Lexicon threads are actually harder to find than they should be.
But, the best way to learn FReeperisms is by experiencing them first hand, and by FReeping enough to glean the meaning and/or come across links to original threads. That does of course require many many many hours of devoted FReeping ;^)
my husband: "whatcha doing hon?"
me: "um, just reading an article"
my husband: "you're freeping, aren't you?"
Thanks...I have always felt out of the loop on that one.
The link should be the adminmoderator homepage
You mean people have been nominating sinkspur as "Most obnoxious FReeper poster" since 2000? I'm not alone! Thanks for the links.
It's already here, post #52.
I've always wanted to know, where did the "All your base belong to us", get started?
And what does it mean?
LOL...... Kinda interesting to go back in time and read some of the old post/threads. I wish the online archives of the 'White Water' threads were still available. They would be very interest to peruse.
Its popular among the fairer FReepers, especially those who frequent live threads.
I believe it represents the sound made by Freepettes when they hit the floor after swooning over various males of the species.
A typical context would involve, say, Major Garrett it tight jeans and a baseball cap.
I've actually started working on it by taking the code from the old Lexicon. I guess I should try to redeem myself, somehow...please pray for me.
I'm glad none of my typos have made legendary status.
