bonmotoring

Refers to the clever wordplay engaged in by TheLarch, baku, claude, orff, and others on the channel. We usually feed off of one another and it's a little like online improv comedy. orff and I were originally going to collect some of these into a double volume of poetry called A Beard Half Grown and A Face Half Shaved.

Starting in late spring 2000, there began an influx of #gayboston people both IRL into SF and online into #gaysf. TheLarch and baku were two such emigrés and they introduced the concept of bonmotoring to the nascent wits-and-wags already here. Now bonmotoring is a bicoastal phenomenon.
