Pronouced: "What the bear"
and is an expression used
surprise and slight confusion.
History of the word
comes from older Quake 1 days
(1996-97) in which it became common lingo
on the internet to say ombear instead of omg (thus bear
replacing God for those
who praise the bear
). Adding Bear
to words became popular and quickly afterwards, "bear
" replaced the "f" in wtf and this is how "wtbear" was born.
