I think Axver started it? Anyway, people need to stop using that acronym. It's really bad.

Preferred: The Bomb.

I wasn't around here before Bomb came out, but I'm guessing that HUTDAB came to be when someone noticed that "HTDAAB", when pronounced out-loud, sounded sort of like "hut-dab."
That's just my guess, though.

EDIT: And I guess Lazarus sort of beat me to it. Never mind.

HUTDAB is Dalton's attempted spelling of Hot Tub.





I think in Bono's mind he didn't lie at all he's so far gone he believes his own lies. He's like Brando in Apocalypse Now, or Stiller in Tropic Thunder. He's discovered a new reality.

Well I know that is wrong for starters! He and McCartney swapped places in the 60's and it was really bono that died, not Paul

1) Ok, but then it wouldn't be an acronym, so it's be Hutdab.
2) This is dumb anyways.


But thanks for humoring me! I didn't know if it was some alternative acronym you came up with for Bomb.

You mean like the Joker in The Dark Knight?

Why so serious, Topic Police?

EDIT: Oh, they weren't "so serious" after all. Never mind.

Apparently, yes. Yes I am.

I wasn't responding to you, I was responding to the whole thread.

I think HUTDAB was basically how you'd pronounce the acronym. I think
