what does /b/ mean?

/b/ is a place online that many seem to think is their secret clubhouse. But since about 400,000 people view the site daily, it’s really no secret.

I’d be direct, but if you’ve never been to /b/ I’d recommend that you hang loose and read something until you find out. No use throwing you to the lions.

WTF is /b/ ?” unsuccessful troll is unsuccessful ?
I smell a trap.

I think what the question means is what the “b” in /b/ stands for.

Jul 27, 2009 at 06:32PM EDT

Fairly certain it doesn’t stand for anything. I think Moot was just going through a list of letters.

/b/ is the Random board on 4chan. Everything else is opinion.

As for what it stands for…. bumblebees.

It’s a fact!

Shit, well, I could of told you that.

Actually /b/ stands for Sekai wo Ooini Moriagerutame no Baked Goods no Dan

I didn’t understand what you wrote pterodactyl. So I guessed and made it into a MSPaint comic.

I think I got it.

Sorry for the crap, I gave up and just resorted to this.

its an imageboard on 4-chan where random stuff is posted. some say /b/tard, some have said it’s an acronym for /b/astard

its a lot of inside jokes and humor related to material on the website.

rule#1 of the internet:
do not talk about /b/
rule#2 of the internet:
do NOT talk about /b/

Rules #1 and #2 only apply for raids, newfag !

/b/ is the acronym for cp, comedy, racism, tom green, pure evil, bagels, anime, porn, fat kids, raids, nonsense, gore images, genital mutilation, and most of this sites content

so, you say, don’t go near these topics?

Aug 03, 2009 at 03:03PM EDT

I have two ideas.

1. /b/ is the random board. This means anything goes, a.k.a. general disscussion. Therefore /b/ could be described as the general board, or generic board. This means /b/ is just a regular board. Therefore, /b/oard?

2. /b/ is the random board. Therefore, there is no fixed sense within /b/, a.k.a. senseless or nonsense. The senselesness within /b/ is extreme, calling for moderately more meaningful description than “senseless”. Another way to convey the description of “senseless” is “bullshit”. Therfore, /b/ullshit?

Anime was first board on 4chan

and expanded to random topics, and I guess he was doing alphabetical order now so he decided to put /b/.

the reason for the // is because in the url itll be

/b/ is a young gypsy woman who breezes into town every harvest to entertain the good folk with her swishy skirt and tambourine. It is rumored that she fancies the baker.

Aug 03, 2009 at 05:05PM EDT

HackerOnHacker, I’m pretty sure that’s Esmeralda from Disney’s hunchback of Notre Dame your describing..

And I’m pretty sure she fancies goats.

Aug 03, 2009 at 05:09PM EDT

Actually, the two are distantly related, if I remember correctly.

Aug 03, 2009 at 05:44PM EDT

According to Wikipedia, /b/ is the asshole of the internet, and I tend to agree. Every time I visit I am amused, shocked, horrified, aroused, and humbled.

I found a Youtube video that should explain everything.

Doesn’t knowledge feel good?

Aug 04, 2009 at 07:31PM EDT

again, look back to my previous post, its an imageboard in the “random section”. you can post random topics and images. also the above youtube link does not load at all.
