Bros are a type of white male between the ages of 16-24. They originated in Southern California during the early 2000s, but are now prevalent in most major cities throughout the US and Canada. They are characterized mainly by their frequent use of the word "bro" to describe other males who are actually unrelated to them, but can be noted by many other distinguishing features such as:

1. A brightly colored Abercrombie and Fitch polo (often pink) worn with the collar popped
2. A Livestrong bracelet
3. A trucker hat, worn either backwards or tilted to the side
4. A pair of gino sunglasses, most likely purchased from Armani Exchange for $39.99, and often worn indoors / in non-sunny weather
5. Being overly tanned, to the point at which it is apparent they spend several days a week at the tanning salon
6. Hair with too much gel in it
7. Working out all the time and wearing overly tight shirts to make it look like they are more jacked than they actually are
8. Frequent use of the words "chill" and "sweet"
9. Liking Family Guy better than the Simpsons
10. Listening to a combination of soft rock (Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Dave Matthews), the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and some rap.
11. Ripped jeans for formal attire and track pants for informal attire
12. The excessive use of cologne and axe body spray

There are several "bro repellants" available to the common North American young man:

1. Listening to thrash metal, grunge metal, or classic rock
2. Using words longer than six letters
3. Staying away from Laguna Beach, Malibu, or any other towns with names that are printed on Hollister shirts
Bro #1: Yo bro, let's go chill at Laguna beach bro, but first we have to work on our tans bro, I hear Lauren Conrad is gonna be there bro.

Bro #2: Sweet bro, sounds chillin' bro, let's do it up bro.

Queers who think they're racist and yet listen to rap and think they are the shit because they wear Skin, Famous star, Alpine star, and SRH shirts and ride dirt bikes and do drugs. They usually wear Electric or Spy sunglasses. They are typically fans of Cotton Mouth Kings and Metal Mulisha. The average truck that a bro drives is a Ford F-150 with stickers of the brands listed above. Bro's typically live in Southern California. They date girls that are called Bro hoe's
Kyle hates those guys in the SRH and Famous Star shirts because they are bro's.

A redneck of sorts. Usually a white ugly short guy who wears big belt buckles(often iron crosses) and drives a lifted pick up truck. They have ugly ass girl friends who they have to be with 24/7 and they beat them too. Always hang out with other bros and are often wiggers and but always faggots. Also they like Metal Mulisha and make sure everyone knows that by putting big ugly ass stickers on their back window of their car. Just fags.
Check out that bro's lifted F-350! Thats tight bro!

Brother shortened. The best friend in life you'll ever have. A bro is your brother, whether related or not. Bros are always there to help eachother out. A bro sticks with you through the hardest times in life. Someone who you can just sit back, smoke some pot, and chill with.
Bros before hos
Bros always got eachothers backs
Bros for life

White, annoying pieces of shit from somewhere around Orange County, or Las Vegas, or Phoenix who always wear tank tops/wifebeaters, exclusively drink Monster energy drinks, advertise Monster on their shitty hats and shirts, drive shitty trucks, listen to bullshit like Hollywood Undead and Skrillex, call themselves a "bro" all the time and somehow are not really "fat", yet their width is longer than their height. They stand around 5'3" on average and think that the Xbox 360 is the only gaming console in existence and that the Gears of War series is "beast". Relatively simple concepts like philosophy, as well as post-7th grader vocabulary such as "relatively" go right over their empty fuckin' heads.
"Bro, dude, bro! You know I'm a bro, right? Fuck man, last night I went to Hollywood Undead, PARTIED, and drank six Monsters! It was BEAST! WOOP WOOP! Fuck fucking shit!"

An acronym coined by Brogramming* meaning:

Bro
Rage
On

The original post:
‎Brogramming has a gift to give to the bro-community at large: a definition. Given our GNU roots, it has to be a recursive acronym:

Bro
Rage
On

* Brogramming is a community on FaceBook (www.facebook.com/getwiththebrogram) that shares information about writing code and doing just about every manly activity imaginable.

Their about page describes Brogramming as:
We rage on the codebase, rage in the gym, and rage at the club.
30hrs straight coding fueled by beer and Red Bull BRO!

The new essential gym gear for the modern Brogrammer: laptop, speakers, turntable.fm. BRO

If you saw Steve Jobs and tried to give him a solid bropound, he would look at you in disgust tell you to get a sweet black turtleneck. BRO

Launching a feature to hundreds of millions of users while using a picture of yourself chugging champagne? Brogrammer confirmed. BRO

And the obligatory OMFG CQTM WTF, BRO!

That guy on the football team who loves The Dave Matthews Band and can (and frequently proves that he can) play the opening stanza of "The General" by Dispatch on the guitar. If he's lucky, he may have a Rasta friendship bracelet.
Jonny: Whoa, cool song, bro. What's it called?
Dan: "The General" by Dispatch.
Jonny: Nice, bro. I'll check it out.

Allison: (from afar) His jeans are so ripped! I wish he'd give me a friendship bracelet.
