Freeper Lingo Thread (the history and meening of 'Freepisms' including pictures)

Freeper Lingo Reference Thread

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 - ??

HAH! The lexicon file needed updating anyway. I'd start with the existing lexicon file, and update with anything you find on this thread that doesn't exist.

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?"
me: (dang!)

Does anyone have a link to the "anatomy of a Zot" thread recently posted by Admin Moderator? That should be included in any Lexicon update.

THUD

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.

Its from a bad translation of a Japanese video game:

The Undead Thread... where those of us from the Troll Pavers local 65,535 gather together to pave over a troll thread by hijacking the zotted thread and using it for our own grotesque purposes.
We ran the first oe to 65,535 posts, and then after that we have come in like a horde of barbarians upon several other troll threads.
(They met the same end as jj_fate..)

You're pretty close. Threads themselves come to an abrupt end at post #65534. (We know, because we took our very first thread to that point.) The mods don't like that, so we now move to a new Zot thread (it's always a Zot thread) at the end of every month, at which time we've accumulated 4000 to 6000 posts.

Well I wasn't just checking out his jeans, I should get some points for noting it was a Washington Nationals ball cap.

Ivan was OK but every time he got PO'd he'd threaten to quit or announce that he's done with FR and get as many FReeper as possible to kiss his arse.

I have run into my share of opposition on this board but I never threatened to take my ball and go home.

He was a boy among men IMO.

"The Ballad of Mike Moran"
(Christopher Storc and Doug from Upland)


I am Irish and was proud to serve with other firemen,
Who gave their lives for us that day, each one of them a friend,
In remembrance of my brothers who from earthly bonds did pass,
Osama, step right up and kiss my royal Irish ass


They’re the bravest men I’ve known and I’ll miss them every day,
I will keep them in my heart, so they’re never far away,
In remembrance of my brothers, who from earthly bonds did pass,
Osama, step right up and kiss my royal Irish ass,
You’ll pay the price, but first you’ll kiss my royal Irish ass


Never thinking of their safety, only saving other lives,
They never made it home to see their daughters, sons, or wives,
In remembrance of my brothers who from earthly bonds did pass,
Osama, step right up and kiss my royal Irish ass,


They’re the bravest men I’ve known and I’ll miss them every day,
I will keep them in my heart, so they’re never far away,
In remembrance of my brothers, who from earthly bonds did pass,
Osama, step right up and kiss my royal Irish ass,
You’ll pay the price, but first you’ll kiss my royal Irish ass


Try to take our freedom and you’ve made a big mistake,
The Spirit of America, you’re never going to break,
In remembrance of my brothers who from earthly bonds did pass,
Osama, step right up and kiss my royal Irish ass


They’re the bravest men I’ve known and I’ll miss them every day
I will keep them in my heart, so they’re never far away,
In remembrance of my brothers, who from earthly bonds did pass,
Osama, step right up and kiss my royal Irish ass,
You’ll pay the price, but first you’ll kiss my royal Irish ass
