Originally the altered
form of the abbreviation 'cba
'can't be arsed/fucked'. It is now a regular verb in English
slang, used in situations where it takes the place of similar phrases
such as 'I can't be arsed', and 'I can't be fucked'. It is used normally by lazy people who prefer to say cbz rather than its longer versions
- the common use of cbz by a person in conversations, sentences etc is a sign
laziness. It has, however, become a very popular phrase
and is regularly used by people instead of using
. It is now commonly used not only
by lazy people, in every tense found in the English
language. An activity which is extremely reluctantly completed
by someone can be identified by such phrases
as: 'such a cbz' 'cbzed so much' (examples 3 and 4) and other similar phrases
. A shorter, equivalent way of using
one of the above example phrases
(when written) is adding additional z's on to the end of cbz (example 5). Cbz is pronounced 'ceebs'.
1 - Are you coming
out tonight? No, I cbz/No, cbz.
2 - Did you take the dog for a walk

4 - If my mum asked me to do it now, I'd cbz so much/cbz it so much.
5 - Hey, mum wants you to go and tidy your room. Cbzzzz.
6 - Coming
to play football? No, I'm cbzing/cbzing it.
