What does it mean when someone says "bump" on the battles forum? ithink it would be cool if after this question gets answered the person that responds should pose on question regarding " what does ________ mean?" follow me??

It means that someone is posting to raise the thread so it can be seen at the top of the list of threads in that forum.

It's trying to get a battle back into the limelight and for people to start discussing it, since most people don't go back past the first page.

Bump: Originally an acronym for "bring up my post." Used for reviving a thread by bringing it back to the front page for more views. 
PIS: Plot Induced Stupidity. When something stupid or illogical happens only because it is required for the plot of the comic. 
CIS: Character Induced Stupidity. When characters dont' live up to their full potential in fights due to being morons. 
WIS: Writer Induced Stupidity. When something stupid happens in a comic because the writer was a moron. 
 
 
That's all I can think of right now. For more, visit the Forum Slang thread.

What does anything mean? Who are you? Who is that man with the briefcase bomb? Who is the woman with the strainer on her head, prancing around in a circle twirling a piece of spaghetti and singing 'Why can't we be friends'? Who am I? WHY ARE NONE OF US WEARING PANTS?!
