Abbv. A few abbreviations for your Internet travels

    I've been trying to figure a way to broach the subject that America's
favorite woman is probably a lesbian, NTTAWWT, but I can't get it down quite delicately enough just yet. Here is something else.




AMT = After My Time: If you are in your fifties; rap came after
your time, in your forties; rap-metal came after your
time, in your thirties; you're still pretending to get what is going
on, in your twenties; you're still in the game.
However, you can use this to describe anything that was/is
aimed at younger persons than yourself. See BMT.


BHF = Bong Hit Funny: Not funny. May appear funny after altering
one's mental faculties with puffs of marijuana; possibly
through a water pipe utilizing a carbeurator for forced
air potency. Has made Adam Sandler a multi-millionaire;
NTTAWWT.


BMT = Before My Time: When referencing something that you are too
young to be aware of first-hand. The Civil War, "Blind"
Tom, the Beatles landing on the Moon; that sort of thing.

BTDT = Been There Done That: Pretty straightforward, a way of saying you
know what you are talking about from experience. "That is not how you
dispose of a dead hooker, BTDT; that show is so fake!"

FWIW = For What It's Worth: May be of little interest, or
questionable origin, yet here it is anyway.


IIRC = If I Recall Correctly. Disclaimer meaning 'don't jam the
exact date or correct information down my throat'.


IMHO = In My Humble Opinion. If you are sarcastic or a candy@$$, you
bait people into underestimating you with this little disclaimer. If
your opinion was actually humble you wouldn't be posting in a message
group/forum etc.; so why pretend?

IMO = In My Opinion. Less smarmy, used to avoid hearing how people hate what you like/think; you probably know that you have no taste when you use this.


IRL = In Real Life: Outside of the Internet; the world we live
in. (Where they keep the cars and trees and kids and dogs
and stores and the mailbox that your eBay stuff goes to.)


ITB = In The Box: On the Internet. "I didn't see you at the
Walmart parking lot, where were you last night?" "I was in
the box for a couple hours then went to bed." Only
abbreviated in print, and only really used by me and a few
people whom know me.


NTTAWWT = Not That There's Anything Wrong With That: A disclaimer
to be used after saying anything that may be perceived
as politically incorrect. (Usually regarding
homosexuality, but not always.) Used sarcastically when
it is obvious from context that you definitely do find
something wrong with 'that'; whatever 'that' is. "He
voted for Schwarzenegger, NTTAWWT."


TMI = Too Much Information: Usually personal things that are
creepy or unsettling and really just uncalled for in a
semi-public forum. Fun line to dance around though, IMO.
"Let me tell you about my latest herpes outbreak."


WUWT? = What's Up With That?: To convey confusion, real or sarcastic.
Similar to WTF but nicer.

WTF? = What The Flange?: Meaning, what is going on here, I am experiencing a lot of confusion.
