GNBFREE.COM | The definitive acronym dictionary

HISTORY

The first acronym, GNB, was created by Joey Patton in 1989. Once its use became common amongst Joey's family and friends, the creation of other acronyms began. Some time after this, the general rules for creation and use of new acronyms were conceived, and an "acronym council" founded. Council members include Joey Patton, Mike Patton, Thom McHugh and Brandon Cobb. Before any new acronym may be put into active use, it must be approved by the majority of council members.
