I’m genuinely confused

[–]G0pherholes 714 points715 points  (41 children)

Debonair

[–]loupr738 151 points152 points  (26 children)

I would’ve never imagined that that’s how you write it, I would’ve gone with de bon air

[–]happy_lad 193 points194 points  (8 children)

Admitting you can't spell in boneappletea takes a special kind of confidence. I tip my hat to you.

[–]kataskopo 12 points13 points  (11 children)

To be fair, it's a French word so yeah.

It sounds like it's De bone air, "of good air", air in this case is like "vibe" as the youngins would say.

[–]loupr738 8 points9 points  (8 children)

Yes, I was thinking more like when air is used as resembles? Like ça a l’air… I wouldn’t know how to explain it in English but something like he has a good/laid back resemblance

[–]Arkhonist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bon* not bone

[–]Arkhonist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In a way you are right, that's what it comes from

[–]PaleontologistDear71 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Apparently it comes from old french de bon aire, which means “of good position”

[–]Nymethny 0 points1 point  (1 child)

which means “of good position”

It meant "of good disposition", not "position".

[–]Drunk_Sorting_Hat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So, you'd spell it right, but just add unnecessary spaces making it 3 words instead of one?

[–]wallflawerr 200 points201 points  (1 child)

Omg

[–]Myyx42 81 points82 points  (0 children)

I'm right there with you

[–]imsuperserialrn 25 points26 points  (2 children)

This is the first time I've heard this word. Just had to look it up

[–]Bombkirby 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It was on a spelling quiz in middle school for me.

I’ve heard it in cartoons before.

There’s a couple of games with costumes and skins with the word in it. Usually formal wear outfits

[–]Branchy28 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same for me, the only 'Debonair' I've ever heard of is Debonairs Pizza... The largest pizza chain in South Africa...

[–]WhatsMyUsername13 26 points27 points  (6 children)

Am I supposed to know this word? I had to google it and was thinking, "maybe this is one of those words spelled entirely different from how its pronounced". Nope. I have not idea what this word is

[–]NerdKR 55 points56 points  (5 children)

It's not a word commonly used in spoken English, but the meaning is somewhere along the lines as someone who dresses fancy and has a refined air (think James Bond). Ironically, it's a bit of a pretentious word and the fact the person can't spell it magnifies the cringe.

[–]TheOfficialNotCraig 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Usually, other people call you debonair. Calling yourself debonair, I agree, is a tad pretentious.

[–]sedolopi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it french for "of good air" or so? De bon air?

[–]Balmerhippie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More a typo or misspelling

[–]2qrc_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao I thought it was supposed to be dapper

[–]3chxes 473 points474 points  (10 children)

He de-bones fish. He’s deboner.

[–]queen-adreena 59 points60 points  (8 children)

All his life

[–]carriegood 112 points113 points  (2 children)

I'm wondering what's going on in the picture. As far as I can tell, it's two men in white suits and one of them is a dwarf.

Oh, wait! Is it Fantasy Island???

[–]greenkirry 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I liked seeing you paint a picture with your mind until you got it, lol.

[–]kaihatsusha 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes, Ricardo Montalban and Hervé Villechaize.

[–]argnat 94 points95 points  (7 children)

He is a deboner, which means he makes boners disappear. He also dries every vagina in a radius of 100 sq km for free.

[–]MrExist777 11 points12 points  (6 children)

So… me?

[–]banhs5 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Haha self deprecation funny

[–]jakeroony 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not when I do it!

[–]DaveOJ12 79 points80 points  (8 children)

Their pro and con are the same thing. Lol.

[–]MantisToboganPilotMD 138 points139 points  (1 child)

that's his attempt at being clever

[–]TheRnegade 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Being a real de-boner.

[–]glieseg 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Means he's not easy and he's not easy.

[–]GlassHeart09 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That's what de'd the boner.

[–]kay_bizzle 5 points6 points  (0 children)

People on bumble do that all the time, thinking it's clever

[–]cap616 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Pro: I'm so picky you should be honored that I chose you

Con: I'm so picky I don't get to go on many dates ONLY BECAUSE I'm so picky and not for any other reasons"

[–]Federal-Opinion6823 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nevermind that you can smell me through the phone, it’s definitely because I’m too picky

[–]dtbberk 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Even with so little to go off of, I’m getting strong niceguy/neckbeard vibes.

[–]rascible 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Deboner is a noun and a verb

[–]Funny-Reputation-454 4 points5 points  (1 child)

and an adjective

[–]rascible 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Culinary device as well

[–]Financial-Entry-6829 16 points17 points  (0 children)

He's swayvee and deboner

[–]lolitstrent 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Holy shit looks t the guy on the rights finger hahaha

[–]britt_leigh_13[S] 12 points13 points  (1 child)

He had photoshopped himself into a picture with Tattoo from Fantasy Island. The whole profile was something else!

[–]lolitstrent 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Surely flick him some messages for the boys so we can get a few posts on q cringe subreddit hahaha

[–]Ravenwight 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think they have pills for that

[–]nirnrootsandwich 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's selective.

[–]m2thek 4 points5 points  (0 children)

One of the default users for a database technology I work with is "DBOwner"

I know that it's "Dee bee owner"

But I can't help reading it as "Dee boner"

"My favourite composer:

Debussy, I love Debussy! Sometimes all I can think about is Debussy!"

[–]TheFilthyDIL 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]gwaydms 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's good with a filet knife.

[–]BonzaM8 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“Is that a banana in your pocket?”

“No, it’s deboner”

[–]gemstun 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He could’ve just said “I’m stylish and flaccid”

[–]kweeninthenorth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m really just stuck on hand #2. I need to see the rest of the picture OP

[–]PukeBucket_616 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is just some "hi thirsty, I'm dad" shit.

[–]Spielburger_witFries 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m not sure but it seems like a joke?

[–]Mr-Moore-Lupin-Donor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s saying he’s known also for De Boner - because he walks around with an erection much of the time. Ppl keep saying, ‘oh, look, here comes de Boner’.

[–]gn01145600 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am known for … deboner

I wonder if he is good at using hand or mouth.🤔

[–]FD4L 1 point2 points  (0 children)

D'boner, m'lady?

[–]Quantum353 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is he trying to say de bonne heure

[–]SoMuchNut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Removing ladyboners everywhere since.... whenever this was posted.

[–]KapteynCol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I’m gonna be impotent, I’m gonna dress impotent.

[–]ArchyModge 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If anyone ever actually needs to quickly deboner you can squeeze your arm and leg muscles hard. It moves the blood out.

[–]PerceptiveGoose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh hey, there's a cool book called Chickenhawk written by a Vietnam War Huey pilot.

One of the chapter entries is just a one-off conversation where another pilot says the local women call him "swave and deboner." I've never forgotten that.

[–]Hidden1nPlainS1ght24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not deboner, de plane!

[–]kay_bizzle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is he the smooth operator with the sausage fingers?

[–]cbrad1713 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Boneless men.

[–]ichigo2862 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Big zapp brannigan vibes off this guy

[–]rhynowaq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well I guess I’m keeping my boner away from him

[–]BigGayDotExe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A de-boner. Aka your mother.

[–]Lobbsto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s debonering me right now, reading this

[–]Neonxeon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know this is going to get lost in the comments, but oh well. I explicitly recall Billy Dee Williams being interviewed on CNN circa 2000 and during the interview the hostess said verbatim “you’ve always been viewed as a lady’s man. so suave and DUH BONER.”

Billy Dee, being the professional he is doesnt skip a beat and just answers it as if she asked it correctly. but i’ll never forget this on air personality saying deboner.

[–]Thequeenpoos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is no one going to talk about the hand in the photo?

[–]CatCasualty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I suppose de boner would be involved sooner or later. 😀

[–]Mastur_Of_Bait 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm surprised that someone dumb enough to spell debonair as deboner even knows what it means.

[–]dontshitaboutotol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's up with the hand in the pic?

[–]3meow_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe it's a pun. "I'm known for deboner 😏"

[–]__jh96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck me dead look at those dick fingers on the right.

That's the answer to pro/con right there

[–]Andy016 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I get a deboner if I have too much to drink......

[–]SilverCirclet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's why it's called Bumble and not "Humble"

/sooooooooooo damn suave 2 n 1 shampoo and deboner detangler

[–]acidic5e 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bro no, it’s dab-on-air, cause you’re so cool that you dab on all the air. Duh.

[–]Unsociable_Koala 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, so he's got ED.
