Urbandictionary with Gary


A childish taunt or jeer pronounced with a nasal sneer, for lack of a more intelligent retort to someone else’s jeer or taunt, usually from a peer. Sometimes sung to the tune of “Ring-Around-the-Rosy” for really driving the point home.

My definition is better than all the other stupid definitions listed here – neener neener.

Weekly Topic

Discussion of PrEP in the bear community.

Items of interest to the topic:

  • Educate: what it is, how it is taken, what it does
  • The results of usage – stats on reduction in transmission?
