Item #6 Bunkerisms – Sometimes rules will be overlooked (ie Item #2) to inject sarcasm. Words will be not be spelled correctly and idioms will be used incorrectly. Legend has it most of these were actually taken from posters on bammer forums. Some of the following will be seen:
Bunkerism / Actual word or phrase
“Band” / “Banned” – 514 was band from the forum
“Your and idiot” / “You’re an idiot” – Yes, someone actually used that once… and meant it
“Escape goat” / “Scape goat” – Don’t think this idiom was intended to describe livestock on the lam
“Raped over the coals” / “Raked over the coals” – Hey, the new member didn’t know, so no need to “Rape him over the coals”
“Taken for granite” / “Taken for granted” – This membership package can be handy, so don’t “take it for granite”.
“Dually Noted” / “Duly Noted” – So do you want it recorded twice or correctly? Yes…it matters.
“Big kahunas” / “Big cajones” – Silly bammer, it’s “cajones”. Jeff Lee is the Big “Kahuna” with big “cajones”.
“Pre Madonna” / “Prima Donna” – A vain person or someone who was around before the 80’s? You be the judge.
“Fullblock” / “Fullback” – Ok, I’m at a loss for words. How do you really screw that one up?
“Skewered” / “Skewed” – Someone’s thoughts may be a bit off, but there is no reason to cook them on a skewer.
“Dominant” / “Dominate” – Just take the time to reference Item #2 for the correct meanings so you may use them correctly.
“Going out on a limp” / “Going out on a limb” – Freudian slip?
“Intensive purposes” / “Intents and purposes” – A very thorough meaning?
“Smoking mirrors” / “Smoke and Mirrors” – A reflective object with a smoker’s cough or a deceptive explanation?
“Imberable” / “Unbearable” – The spelling and grammar of the Bunker can be ‘imberable’ at times.
“Pocket Presents” / “Pocket Presence” – Give me a quarterback that knows his way around the pocket….not IN the pocket.

“Paul Bearer” / “Pallbearer” – Are we talking about the “Bahr” tatted wierdo or someone who carries the casket?
“Just gone ask” / “Just going to ask” – Go ahead, just throw up 3 random words and we’ll figure out the rest.
“Supposively” / “Supposedly” – Yeah, it’s not ‘supposebly’ either.
“Turret Syndrome” / “Tourette Syndrome” – Mess this one up and you’ll be fired upon like a gunship’s turret.
“Tit bit” / “Tidbit” – Will you quit pinching your nipples and just tell me what the tidbit of gossip is.
