WAGBOG HISTORY UPDATE: Apparently I'm not the first person to acronymize "what a great bunch of guys." Got an email today indicating that any history of WAGBOG would be incomplete without reference to this guy's dad:

I'm writing because I'm curious about the genesis of WAGBOG. I'm asking because it's been in our family since the early 70's. The family would be watching MASH or something on TV, and when the show was over and they froze the action with everyone smiling, my dad would say, "What a great bunch of guys!", which, over time, became shortened to "WAGBOG!"

"WAGBOGs are, by definition, date rapists."

That's a little harsh.

You're so right, Josh.

That's just bizarre. Who says WAGBOG and who has the right to decide whom is so? And why should we always believe Dad?

I started and wrote that first definition based on my interpretation of Portman's acronym. I just responded to all of your comments. Cheers.
