Skip to comments.Freeper Lingo Thread (the history and meening of 'Freepisms' including pictures)

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 - ??
Actually, I'm the original showergirl - What happened was, I'd just got out of the shower, heard there was something going on at BWI Airport and my husband was flying into MIA from there that morning.
I posted that I'd just gotten out of the shower, heard something was going on and asked for updates. Took ribbing for many months over that one.
But hey, if you want to take credit for it!!! Smile!!!
(no I didn't change my nick or go into hiding, I'm still here...grin)
However, I must quibble with you in a wee way: The Clintons =are= indeed Americans, grown and fostered in the fertile soils of dishonor, grown from bad American policy many years earlier. Do they belie and betray and American dream and its founding Values? YES. Are they ernest? No. Do they lead others astray from time-value virtues? YES. Quibble done.
The values of the Clintons are clinquant.

As I understand it, Bush has a habit of creating knicknames for all the people he has to deal with on a regular basis. After the Clymer incident, Bush started calling his VP "Big Time". Hence, the baseball jersey.
For some reason, I don't remember that one... But, after the Adam Clymer incident, where the President was caught calling Clymer a "major league a$$h*lw," (and Cheney said, "yeah, big time!") and even though the press made such a big deal over it, President Bush never did apologize for calling Clymer "A Clymer."
For some reason, I seem to recall the White House giving the entire press corps baseball jerseys with "Major League As" on the front, and "Big Time" on the back, but when I looked it up, an article said that it was the press corps that got them for Halloween, and they were all wearing Bush masks.
So I'm not really sure how that ended, only that I do remember seeing the press corps wearing those jersies.
They don't? Why not? Is it that "mroof-ing" is forbidden, or they just don't like to do it?
sorry, I really couldn't help myself
One of these?

BTW, no one has yet been able to tell me where the metal foil goes, i.e., on the outside of the hat, or does one cover the skull and then don the chapeau?
Should one use aluminum foil, tin foil, lead foil, mU metal, gold, copper, what? My Beeber is Stuned for reply?
Scarmable came from this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-backroom/1318595/posts
Or this thread.
I missed that thread - hillarious....thanks for the link.
Hillarious: Senator Clinton.
I'm not sure. The best thing you could do is go to a zot thread and ask the freeper who posted the pic.
I bet, with enough searching of the archieves and our own memories, we could have a FReeper Ratherism Memorial Page...
