Default What is a "SWIMBO"




All right, I know I am going to sound stupid here, but here goes nuttin’. I read these threads here on Home-Brew Talk regularly, and I have been able to decipher almost all of the acronyms I have seen used in the posts. However, this one, "swimbo" or a close approximation has me confused. I have gathered based on the other information in the posts, that “swimbo” refers to a wife / girlfriend / significant other, or that kind of person / relationship in which the author is describing. An example of this being used would be as follows:

“This weekend I will be brewing up a batch of strawberry wheat beer, so I will have a drinkable beer for the Swimbo. “ Or “Swimbo would surely make my Super bowl party painful to endure if she does not have at least a six pack of something painfully sweet to drink.”

So, what exactly does the term “swimbo” mean? I know this is off beer topic, so I put it here in general Chit Chat.
Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you all,
In beer we trust,

Kurt

Isn't it protocol to throw out at least several funny responses before translating the acronyms?

These guys are all wrong.

SWIMBO means She Who Irritates Me Beyond Others

Did you google it? Probably would have gotten an instantaneous response. That's how I learned the acronyms on here, even "eac."
