1.) this is a term that one uses to acknowledge A Job Well Done

2.) a type of Bonus Point--as, most notably, used/issued by the Racing Video Game Series, 'Project Gotham Racing'--that someone can earn for doin' somethin' Prop Worthy

(in reference to Definition #2, these sorts of Kudos are best awarded only during Instant Messenger Conversations or, if not during an IM Session, then, as you are retrospectively writing about Some Event; you'd have to admit, it would be rather strange & inappropriate to give out Kudos right in the middle of a Face-to-Face Conversation that you're having.. ..with another Human Being.)
ex. (1): "from wut I heard ´round Da Block from Da Home|Boyz yesterday, you had skeeted Dat Azz pretty nicely -- my Kudos to You, nikka."

ex. (2): if you an' me were chatting on an Instant Messaging Service, and you were to suddenly bust out some Rhymes on me during that conversation (Rhymes that actually make sense, and do relate to whatever it is We're currently talkin' about).. ..then, i might just have to give you some Kudos Bonus Points for Your Excellent Skillz -- Da Phatter Da Rhyme, Da Biggah Da Bonus.

ex. (2-a): ***Rock|Rock*** (1:25:04 a.m.) "god damn, shawty.. ..that was a pretty sick flow, there; +5,023 Kudos bonus points!"

(or, I might choose to bestow some of Those Points to you if you were to **wow** me in another way.)

ex. (2-b): ***Rock|Rock*** (1:38:37 a.m.): "well, I am most certainly glad to hear that you had donated so much time and money, just last week, in volunteering to help feed The Homeless.., not only do you got Sick Flowz but you also are a Decent Person, all around. .)_.) +93,771 Kudos bonus points, my man."

now, when you're retrospectively writing about some event you had experienced, or anticipate experiencing, some time in The Future, then, you'd bust out Da Kudos in this way:

ex. (2-c): "all I can say is, when I saw Jet Li kick _three_ people in the'i'* head, all in less than 2 seconds, I damn near fell out my fuckin' chair. that Chinese Niggah gets +3,734 Kudos bonus points from me, for doin' all *dat* bullshit."


ex. (3-a): ***Rock|Rock*** (5:56:21 p.m.): "..what in the blue fucking hell are you talkin' about, muh|fuckah??? are you High, or somethin'?? -46,804 Kudos bonus points! ´da fuck outta here, talkin' dat Dumb Shit to me -- ´fuckin' Coon Ass."

* ("the'i'" is pronounced "they," and is how "their" supposed to be spelled, when you're Slangin' It)

A term used by idiots thinking that it is the singulal form of kudos when kudos is accualy the singular form of 'kudos' the plural form of kudos is pronounced 'coo-doze' and the singular form is pronounced 'coo-dose' both are spelled the same.
On kudo is defined as a real word. under the defanition of kudos they explain that kudo is incorrect. you may be thinking 'But if lots of people use it it's a word' well lots of people arereally fuckin' stupid, too, should we just accept their standards?

Thanks to George Carlin
Idiot: "I got a kudo from about my cool shirt today"
Non-Idiot: "I'm going to kill you very very slowly using a fork and a broken pice of glass"
