Charmion BS: Language question, not a peeve (64* d) RE: BS: Language question, not a peeve 24 Jun 19


Meself, if you wish, here is the explanation of "kybo" for which you may or may not have been searching.

"Kybo" originated in the Scouting movement in the United States. This Wikipedia article connects it to a brand of coffee, the tins it came in, and the use of same to sprinkle lye down the privy hole, thus identifying the word as a "backronym" for Baden-Powell's oft-repeated advice to "keep your bowels open".
