I see a bunch of postings about trailers using the term "SOB" what does it mean? I know what it usually means.

When I first joined the forum I was reading a ton of topics about everything. It drove me crazy trying to figure out what "SOB", "DW", and some other stuff meant. I was ready to ask some of my grandkids to figure it out since they use a language all their own when they text.
