I have to admit that I’m puzzled by the internet from time to time. I’m no novice – I’ve been online since the headset-inserted-into-the-modem-receiver-with-the-screechy-noise days, but sometimes the craziness of it all amazes me. I started getting some hits for ‘brip’ and found out that brip is a reference to a snowboard move:
Shredding a turn on a snowboard or skies. Also accomplishing anything in general, but usually only exuberant things.
I bripped that mountain.
You sure bripped that RBV.
Cherish the Brip.
To bong rip, or rip the bong.
To inhale smoked marijuana from a water pipe.
The third definition was pretty negative, so I’ll leave it out for self-serving purposes (it was #3: to lie, but it was overwhelming voted down, so I’ll dismiss it as a hater).
I liked that first definition. I know the urban dictionary has nothing to do with my writing, but I have to say I’m fairly pleased to see ‘brip’ – as in brip blap – associated with such a positive term as laid out in #1. And hey, #2 is not all bad, either.
So go out and brip it! I love the idea that a word that I associate so closely with myself now could be a positive term. Go brip it! I think I’ll work it into my daily speech now, and you should too – not just for my sake or my site’s, but because that’s a great definition for a great word: “accomplishing anything in general, but usually only exuberant things.” That’s great- accomplish exuberant things: brip them!
