SIB is an acronym for Strangers in a Bait Shop, which refers to having a stronger desire
to impress people that
you do not have any acquaintance with
to solve problems with
someone who you are deeply connected with
. The word derives from
the episode of the Simpsons where Homer and Marge
go on holiday to solve their marriage problems and Homer ends up spending
the whole time trying to catch a giant catfish that
3 hillbillies in a local fishing bate shop were talking about. It is particularly
significant to online and gamer relationships people have with
each other that
can take priority over real
Wife: Darling please, we need
to speak about our marriage!
Husband: Listen, love. If I don't beat Bonk111 in the Fifa 09 International Cup final of Ultimate team, I won't get a wink of sleep
tonight!! Let go of my arm, goddammit!!
Wife: How dare you sib me!
