Attention Media: You May Want to Not Call That Tween Boy Band “JoBros” Anymore

jobrosdude22.jpg

We had the following email exchange this morning with a person that goes by the initials BW:

BW: LATimes.com has a headline on their front page that refers to the Jonas Brothers as the “JoBros.” That’s just one capital letter away from being completely inappropriate.

I’m going to be sick now.

TD: Dumb that down for me. I don’t get it.

BW: JO? As in “JO party,” as in “jack off?” Yuck.

TD: That’s what they’re called now? Circle jerks are called JO parties?! Are you making this up just to be weird?

BW: Seriously, it’s a real expression. I’m sure you could find it used on craigslist. I’ve heard people make jokes (or maybe NOT jokes) about “JO parties” so I’m sure there is plenty of truth behind it.

And we looked on craigslist and there it is. Just a warning – you can’t un-see it. Shudder.
