I can definitely agree with that. Actually just call them The Offspring. It's not like you need to abbreviate it...

Wow. So not worth a thread.

I find TO more irritating anyway.

Wow. So not worth a thread.

Maybe. But really DO agree with the poster's point. It looks so gay somehow.

The Offspring sounds powerful. 'Offy' sounds.... well, as I said.

Um...Uh...Hm... I've started calling them 'Offy' but I guess people can't take a joke. Ah, yes The Offspring do sound overtly Impowering.

Offy is about as far away from TRUPUNX as it gets. It's also corny.

It sounds like a term of endearment to me, like you'd call Robert "Bobby", or Daniel "Danny", as well as an abbreviation. I dunno. I do say it ironically sometimes because it sounds silly.

I can honestly say I've never called them that. :eek:

Calling them "Offspring" is about as short as its gets for me.
But that's only sometimes, like you can't say "I'm going to the The Offspring show on Thursday."
It doesn't sound right, for obvious reasons.

I'm pretty sure there's a platoon of fans who call them The 'Spring . . . BINGO! So, if you're gonna shorten it, I think this has been acceptable. :cool:

Offy sounds so awkward. I don't see why people are so determined to short hand everything. Its like a couple years ago when the shorthand for song names got so ridiculous people were shortening two word songs to letters.

Seriously...

"The Offspring" takes like two seconds to type if you spend much time on a keyboard at all (which everyone does, they force keyboarding classes on kids in grade school for years)

Offy sounds like the title of a straight to DVD movie which has a cute animal that saves the day as a main character. Maybe a baby seal.

I'm sure that only iPunk calls them Offy. And I hate it too.

I'm sure that only iPunk calls them Offy.

This is not true because I say 'Offy' most of the time, however I only say it in this forum or when I'm talking to people outside the bbs, who are members of the bbs. When speaking to others, I say 'The Offspring'


It sounds like a term of endearment to me.

... and this is the reason why I use the word 'Offy'

I wasn't aware there was anyone who called them "Offy." I've never heard that, when did it start?

I would call them Offy just because the creator dislike it.

TRU PUNX OR WHAT?

Exactly, not like we're talking about the Red Hot Chili Peppers cause I know some people say RHCP haha..

Jesus, guys. Does being TRUPUNX means being grumpy? It's just a nick, people can call them whatever they want, it's not pejorative, not an insult. Just a silly nick.

Seriously, some people here seem like they live tense and looking for things to complain. I would never think The Offspring's fans would be like that, considering they're such a cool and laid back band. Wasn't being punk about doing what you feel is right and stuff? Why is that the tru punks act like dictators most of the time? O_o

Oh, and The Offspring is not TRUPUNX (which is even worse a term than Offy, because usualy it comes with delusion -.-).

While the term "Offy" may not be intended as an insult, "TruPunx" certainly is.

I MUST confess something:

I started calling Offy to Offspring in the Bad Religion Page forum...

I don't know if I started the Offy thing, but yeah, I called them Offy in that forum...

Calling the Offspring "Offy" warrants one full pitcher of beer dumped over the offenders head.

As much as I'm against pointless and too short to have a point kind of threads, I actually highly approve of this one, Offy is just about the gayest thing I've ever heard any band reffered to as.

I absolutely agree with Tijs. In my view Offy isn't a name for a band like The Offspring. But its your own opinion.

I think "Offy" emasculates the band. They're grown men. I feel embarrassed even writing it.

Thankfully, I haven't heard anyone call them that as I'm sure I'd correct them, douse them in Gringo Bandito and set them aflame. ;)

KyleW
08-14-2010, 06:34 PM
The Offspring or Offspring or 'that band I really like' since most people can identify them more when I say that. Never Offy though, it sounds like a cheesy boyband and we don't want Dexter beating himself with a baseball bat now do we?
