Turns Out “Bae” Means Something Entirely Different

We've been using the word "bae" for years now. But how many of us have actually stopped to take a look at the etymology of the word?
At it turns out, our ignorance has served us well. The word "bae," which is usually used to describe someone who comes "before anyone else," has a very different meaning in Danish.
It means poo. To add insult to injury, it means "bye" in Icelandic. Apropos, no?
The real question is whether or not best of bae will update their whole Twitter vibe. That could get NSFW. Or NSFL (not safe for life — you're welcome).
It gives a whole new meaning to this, right?
We'll just stick with emoticons from now on. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
