YouBoob (YouTube nickname)

YouTube is an American video-sharing website that began in February 2005. In November 2006, Google purchased YouTube. YouTube is sometimes called “YouBoob” ("boob" meaning idiot), perhaps a joke on the “boob tube” nickname for television. “YouBoob” was cited in the newsgroup rec.music.opera on June 12, 2006.

Other YouTube nicknames include “CensorTube,” “JewTube,” “ScrewTube,” “ThemTube” and “TheyTube.”


Wikipedia: YouTube
YouTube is an American video-sharing platform headquartered in San Bruno, California. Three former PayPal employees—Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim—created the service in February 2005. Google bought the site in November 2006 for US$1.65 billion; YouTube now operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries.
