Brocabulary

As you thumb through The Bro Code, you may come across some words and terms you’ve never seen before. 

While Bros are always encouraged to spread the truth of the Bro Code, they are also cautioned against overusing “Bro.” Such Broliferation cheapens the important mission of this book and, nearly as important, makes you sound stupid.

Inappropriate “Bro” Usage

As you thumb through The Bro Code, you may come across some words and terms you’ve never seen before. Many have been boldfaced and placed in the Glossary so you can familiarize yourself with the Bronacular.

While Bros are always encouraged to spread the truth of The Bro Code, they are also cautioned against overusing “Bro”. Such Broliferation cheapens the important mission of this boom and, nearly as important, makes you sound stupid.

Bro!

Hey Bros!

So we’ve been racking our brains to see what we could do for you guys to better enhance the site, so we have decided to add a Brocabulary page.

It should be up in the next few days. We are currently compiling a list of Bronacular to add on the page (outside of what is already in the code) so we are officially taking suggestions!

To submit any Bronacular you have*, just send it to our Ask page with the word and it’s meaning. The best ones will be added to the list, excluding repeats (obviously).

Cant wait to see what you Bros come up with.

*The words DO NOT have to include “bro” in them, however bonus points if it does and it works.
