Just How Many Things Does PBR Stand For, Anyway?
Today’s post started out as something different. I was Googling “PBR case” for a good image to steal, with my usual dedication to copyright and proper citation, that might help illustrate the concept of Wisconsin hospitality to readers from less fortunate states.
But what I learned in the process was that “PBR” stands for an awful lot of damn things. For example, it clearly has something to do with computers:
It’s also apparently a thing you can get shot with. Non-fatally, since it stands for “plastic baton round” (sounds much nicer than “riot bullets,” I guess), but you should still probably double-check what Officer McFriendly means when he offers to share some PBRs with you.
And then apparently there’s this physics thing, where you’re comparing the “PBR case” to the “ZR case.” Man do I want to be a part of that study.
It’s also the Burkinabé Party for Refoundation in Burkina Faso, a nuclear “pebble bed reactor,” the “plant breeders’ rights” that the creator of a new plant breed enjoys, and the Professional Bull Riders organization.
All this from one little Google Images search. Plus I found this awesome picture of what appears to be a Pabst Blue Ribbon coffin, bringing a new and wholly inaccurate meaning to the phrase “going out in style.”
So I’m not the only one that gets wholly distracted when looking for images, right? I think the original post was going to be something about my brother’s unannounced visit, and how we always wind up tying one on, but I’ve lost track by now. You tell me which would have been better!
