Sos (pronounced soss, not as each separate letter as one might do when referring to the emergency message Save Our Souls, commonly abbreviated to S.O.S) is a term with a wide variety of meanings, uses and interpretations. It is derived from a device used in many YTPs (Youtube Poops) where the audio and video of a clip is edited to make it seem like the speaking character says “soss” for comedic effect. In this adapted version, sos can mean many things. It can be used to describe almost anything the speaker wishes, but is more commonly used to express appreciation for something. It can also be said whilst the speaker sucks air back into their lungs whilst speaking to make the way the person says the word funnier. This is how the term became known in its current form. A version of sos, the noun sosser can also be used when referring to something cute, usually a dog
