What are SOBs?

I see this abbreviation used quite often in these forums, and I can't quite figure out what it means.

Just to clarify - I know what an SOB "person" is....but I assume that's not how it's used here!

Thanks.

Of course, some SOBs are owned by SOBs.

While we're at it, can any non-Wisconsian answer what a FIB is?

The polite reference to a driver of an out of state vehicle with Illinois plates is Friendly Illinois Buddy, but you can change the Adjective to another F word depending on your mood, as well as the last word to a gender specific B word also depending on your mood and mostly depending on their lack of courtesy on the Hwy.... But when I lived in Milwaukee, we just called them FIBs for short.

Growing up in Chicagoland, yes I can answer the FIB question. That's what the Cheeseheads () called us when we came up to Lake Geneva and surrounding areas in the Summer to visit.

I grew up in Chicagoland too and also spent many summers, holidays, and weekends in Lake Geneva (during the late 60's and early 70's). Anyway, we were called FIP's by the Cheeseheads (the P stood for People and the other letters you've already explained!).
