An acronym coined by Brogramming* meaning:


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:


* Brogramming is a community on FaceBook ( 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, 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!

A group of guys usually the age of 16-24. A closely bonded group of males (no homo) who are constantly drinking natty, and talking about their "bitches" making them sandwiches, even though the majority of them have never experienced a female actually abiding by their rules. They usually just stand around holding a red plastic cup waiting for something exciting to happen so they can scream something that demonstrates how much they enjoy partying. They usually over use the words Broski, chill, natty, bitch, and sandwhich.

You will be able to determine a bro by the way they dress.
Short shorts, polo or tshirt, oakleys worn behind neck, sandals, and a visor or hat either front or back.. never sideways.

The bros usually run the school, lord knows for what reason. They are usually followed by a group of "hoes" and these hoes and bros join together to make a pack of obnoxious delinquents.

The bros must always abide by the bro code.... no matter what. Its sacred.
Yo bro, lets get some hoes and hit up a party, sound chill?

1. see douche
2.A bro is usually a white male who's dress consists typically of an overly tight hat, khaki shorts, flip flops/sandels, and a rugby/abercrombie/logo T;
"shades" are optional. Often seen "popping their collars", throwing their hats to the side, and being overtly obnoxious and/or cocky. Typical conversations are of beer pong and spotting catch phrases such as "Shit BRO!" or "I got so wasted playing beer pong Bro". They listen to bands such as Three Days Grace, or any other "hard rock" band; also brag about any sessions of exercise.
"Sup Bro?! You wanna bro it up with the bros? We're goin over to some bro's house with some bros later!"


"Yeah bro.. I listen to Three Days Grace, AND I work out..and what!?"

A de-evolution of the typical White male, into a retarded, mongoloid animal that runs straight on Coors and weed. Most real Motocrossers hate Bros because they all suck at riding but say that they don't. Some Bros can be classified as wiggers, which is odd because they are extremely racist. They drive 20" lifted trucks that never see dirt yet boast about how they did 8 backflips at Glamis. They like to start stuff with people for no reason on the way you look even though they look about ten times as gay as you could ever dream of making yourself look. Their slutty jizz jar female followers known as "Brohos" are dumb bimbos that just want to get fucked and have some sense of an identity.
My girlfriend was real cool until she started wearing SoCal shit and started hanging out with a couple Bros and wanted me to start shopping at No Fear, so I dumped her slutty ass.

I might also mention that about 4 of my really good friends degenerated into Bros a couple years ago and they now work in either commercial construction or a No Fear store... If your friends start showing signs of Bro degeneratingness, it would be best to put them down.
