OT: All-time favorite MGoTerms

Submitted by Njia on June 15th, 2010 at 2:12 PM

twatwaffle -  (twat-wah-full): n. An elitist; someone unaware of their own limitations and highly critical of others.

Okay, the past nine months since I joined MGoBoard have seen some of my favorite Internet content, ever. In just the past week, I have been introduced to terms such as "douchey twatwaffle" (my all-time favorite) and "bullshittery." I'm sure there are others, but my chortling is limiting my powers of recall at the moment.

What are some of yours? And I promise to pos-bang everyone who contributes one of the terms.

I had heard of being a douche, but had no way to qualify the act of being so. I'm sure it didn't originate here, but MGoBlog sure helped its legend grow.

unverified voracity and the legend behind it.

EDIT: And also OMGShirtless to describe a potential stud recruit (originated when tebow was a high school senior and some picture of him shirtless came out IIRC). Or the even newer Half-Shirtless to describe a potential recruit who could be good but isnt at the top of the totem pole.

Erroneous. 

"OMG Shirtless" and "OMG Half-Shirt" have nothing to do with a player/recruit's potential.  It only has to do with how good they look when they rock a no-shirt or half-shirt look.  For example, if M-Rob chose to go shirtless here:

We'd be saying "OMG Shirtless" but he chose to mix it up and go half shirt. It doesn't mean he has less potential than Tebow...

Close.  OMGShirtless came about back in the blogspot/sitemeter days.  One day Brian was checking his referrals and discovered that someone had found their way to mgoblog by googling "Tim Tebow Shirtless" or "Tebow Shirtless" (I don't remember which).  This was when Tebow was still a much-hyped recruit and not the college football savior that we all know him now to be.

I think it's only been within the last year that an actual shirtless picture of Tebow emerged, finally fulfilling the prophecy.

I recall I had to explain to my wife what I meant when I was watching last season...

There was a missed pass.

My response: "fcuking tacopants..."

Wife: what the hell?

I am unsure she quite understood the application of a fictitious character as a causal factor in passing game inefficiency last fall.

I don't know what it is but imitations of GBMW get me everytime BUT ALSO make me laugh everytime. No sugar coat.

Although saying it anywhere is gets confused looks

Also Brian's exclamation when reacting to the new look of Denard in his track picture "Sweet Jesus in a pickle bun!" I use that from time to time as well and it gets some chuckles, thanks Brian.

Magnus - n. Someone who appears to be a cynical asshat, but is really just a shockingly frank person with accurate information and zero tolerance for ignorance.

Example:

Fred: "Dude, I thought my fantasy team would be lights-out 'cause of the research I did about the players, but Joe was a total Magnus to me and now I have to redo the entire thing."

Jim: "What an asshole."

Fred: "Maybe if he wasn't right."
