What does BTOBS stand for?

Be there or be square

BTOBS is a fun, catchy acronym that’s used to put a little pressure on someone to show up at a party or event. It’s essentially saying if you don’t come, you’re going to be seen as boring or uncool.

Interestingly, this slang has a bit of geometry humor in it. The idea is that being a ‘square’ (which usually refers to someone who’s not interesting or fun) is not as good as being some other shape. It’s a playful way to say, “Don’t be a square, be there!”

So, next time you get an invitation with BTOBS on it, remember this is more than just a random collection of letters. It’s a friendly nudge to join in on the fun and avoid being labeled as a ‘square’.
