"Ebin", sometimes spelled "Epin", is an intentional misspelling of the word "epic" which is often associated with the character Spurdo Spärde and ironic meme culture.
According to Encyclopedia Dramatica, the term "epin" was coined as a shortened form of the phrase epic win in June 2009 on 4chan's /b/ (random) board, where it was spammed repeatedly and accused of being a forced meme. On June 7th, several Urban Dictionary definitions for "epin" were submitted. According to the s4s Wiki, the term "ebin" was subsequently coined as a Spurdo Spärde-style misspelling of epin on the Finnish image board Kuvalauta to avoid bans for posting the word "epic."
On November 2nd, 2013, a page for "Ebin" was created on the s4s Wiki. On December 15th, a 4chan user submitted a picture of Doge with the question "What does ebin means?" (shown below).
On February 18th, 2014, Redditor C0ltFury asked "What does the 'Ebin' meme mean?" in a post submitted to the /r/NoStupidQuestions subreddit. On April 1st, YouTuber Herr uploaded a Baneposting video titled "Ebin Meem Broseph", garnering over 100,000 views in the next year (shown below). On December 15th, Urban Dictionary user Fuegot submitted an entry for "ebin," defining it as an ironic term used to mock meme culture.
