Bad Boy Billy (BBB)—When used as a noun, a bug in the Microsoft Windows operating system that causes your application to crash. When used as an expletive, what you say when a bug in the Microsoft Windows operating system causes your application to crash. The usage is restricted to those occasions when you haven’t lost any data and can easily resume work by just restarting the crashed application, thereby making invective of a more venomous nature unjustified. It’s a little like the fond ticking off you give to a badly behaved child who just will not do what he’s told—in this case, a child who bloats the operating system with functionality no one needs, while refusing to fix the bugs that everyone encounters!
Billy-Boy—A term that refers to Bill Gates, and evinces a curious combination of affection and condescension, all rolled into one. Don’t take it to heart William; you know how people are; they’re just envious of your fame and fortune!
