                Actually, Just drop the first "B" and you have it.

                  I always just use " BBs" with the lower case s to represent a plural.
                  When I realy use the BS for the other application. :-)

                    BBS is the Bulletin Board System.

                    BS is what Wolfie is standing in.

                      If you wouldn't produce so much of it Sir John it wouldn't flow all the way over here.

                        See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulletin_board_system

                        Used to be a lot more local in the dial up days compared to where the Internet gets us go now. Imagine having pizza and beer and geeking out on machining every Friday with the rest of the users on the board.

                        Nowadays you can anonymously talk trash on boards and never have to live up to your claims.... as much.
