What does GD&R stand for?

Grinning, ducking, and running

When someone uses “GD&R” in a text or online, it means they’ve just made a cheeky or sarcastic comment.

It’s like saying they’re “grinning, ducking, and running” to dodge any backlash.

Here’s an example: let’s say Bob just lost his fortune in a divorce. His friend, George, might text him, “Hey, look on the bright side. You’ll have less taxes to pay next year. GD&R.” Or if you’re chatting with a friend who’s conscious about looking too buff, you could joke, “Your new shirt makes you look like Thor. GD&R.”
