This face says, “GOD! I am WAY TOO BUSY having a mouthful of braces and a hot-rolled ponytail to smile for you, Mom! GOD!” —bershon (flickr pool)

The world needed a word to describe this attitude. I haven’t been able to trace its origin, though.

Update: My German classes were a long time ago, but as I was driving to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving, I kept hearing the word “verschon” in my mind.

I looked it up on the internet, and, since everything one finds on the internet is automatically correct, I now know that “verschon mich” means means “gimme a break” or “spare me!”

Could that be the origin of “bershon”?
