1. A word or nickname referring to a guy friend. A friend who is like a brother, hence "bro" the shortened version of brother- because every college guy is so lazy that he can't even finish saying a damn word.
2. An actual blood relative- your parents' child who is a male.
3. A prefix added to any word starting with the sound "o". An extension of the commonly used nickname "broski" or "broseph".

Usage: This prefix can be used to create a nickname or to create a word which referrs to something you and your boys think is pretty chill.
1. "Yo bro, that was a sick party last night."

2. "Yeah i went to go visit my bro at Tulane last weekend- it was frikkin awsome."

3. "Yo broski, we should hit the *brocean* before the summer's over."
*Bro + ocean*

Nickname: Bromance (bro + romance)= a guy who is particularly successful with the ladies- and even if he's not, you and your boys know him as the romantic one. However, he may also be the one dude who has found himself in a committed relationship while the rest of you are bachelors.

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!

A person who would give you the shirt off his back if he doesn't want to wear it anymore. A Bro is a person who will bend over backwards to help you bend someone over backwards. In short, a Bro is a lifelong companion you can always trust to be there for you, unless he's got something else going on.
You really helped me out of a tight spot man. You are my Bro for the rest of time.

No definitions have yet mentioned the Midwest bro's in particular, but broism has become rampant in the Midwest. They are on every Big Ten campus (especially frats.)

This particular variety of bro always drinks the cheapest beer or liquor and may or may not smoke weed.

The clothes they wear might not be as expensive as the clothes people wear on the coasts, but these bro's are still wearing the most expensive clothes that they can. They also pimp their rides out as much as they can. They compete with money the same way, even if they have less of it.

Hobbies are the same-- weightlifting, pick-up basketball, golf, and especially, frolf.

Even though they behave as belligerently and are as disrespectful towards women as bro's anywhere else, they go to church once or twice a month. They are obsessive sports fans and if they go to a larger college (especially Big Ten) they will attend literally every home football game (if not every away game) and a very high amount of basketball games as well. They will be drunk for every game.

Chicago is bro central for the midwest, but Minneapolis/St. Paul has many bro's as well. Universities in Ohio are also notorious for bro's especially OSU and Miami U.

Don't believe you are safe from the bro stereotype if you move to the midwest!
Female one: "Ugh, why are there so many bro's at that party?"

Female two: "Yeah, it feels like we're still in San Bernadino."

Found primarily in the northeast and deep south, a bro is typically a white male from a wealthy background who enjoys excessive drinking and partying, sports (especially lacrosse), and music (usually underground rap (wiz khalifa, oncue), alternative (kings of leon, DMB), and techno) Bro's dress differently depending upon the region they live in, but the main elements include polo ralph lauren, sperry's, and designer sunglasses (costa del mars, ray bans). Bro's use the college they attend or attended as status symbols and most Bro's post-college can be found in the financial business. Bro's are considered to be extremely success oriented and their aggressiveness in life tends to anger several other societal groups (see hipsters).
Bros can be found in the majority of the male characters in Wedding Crashers, anybody who plays lacrosse, or Stifler from American Pie.
