If you don’t have at least one group chat with the most obscure/fucked up name in existence, are you even on the internet in 2018? It seems like group chats have taken over our lives as a means for connecting with mates, with entirely new friendship groups forming out of them (I can attest to this).
Because we love stupid shit like dumb names that come from some godforsaken place in people’s minds, we pooled our friends and random people about their bizarre group chat names, and how they came to be.
THE WINDY BUM BOYS
Our band name is/was a slang term for a fart. – Cam
Someone in our group chat called someone else a “chunt”, which is basically an amalgamation of “champion” and “cunt”. Then two of us started annoying him by using it as a term for drinking “god I could chunt a beer right now” and it became our ongoing word, which turned into our chat name. – Mel
We had a group chat for our netball team which is called The Sharon Strzeleckis, but then a group of us kept talking in the chat and pissing off people who just wanted team info. So we made a sub group called The Kims. – Jenna
JUSTIN’S CAR SMELLS LIKE DEATH ITSELF DIED IN THERE
My old housemate made the group, and Justin is his brother. The end. – Kassia
THE SISTER WIVES
Me and two friends have a long-running joke about having Emma’s boyfriend impregnate the three of us and we all live together in a sort of perfect commune society, where he remains Emma’s boyfriend but just makes babies with us all since he’s a 10/10 guy. I mean you asked for weird… – Mel
HORNY ROAST CHAT
This is just my group for organising regular dinner parties. It’s had other iterations of the same name but it’s mostly us being all horned up about good food. – Courtney
LESBIAN SOUL SCISSORS!
This is just because everyone in the chat is my lesbian soul sister. – Jenna
My group chat with friends from school is called “Chootz”, as an ode to Central Coast royalty, Shmyl. – Chantelle
PARK IN YOUR OWN COMPLEX!
Someone keeps leaving this note on my car so we thought this was funny. It used to be called Bong Lords but my girlfriend kept forgetting to put her phone face down at work, so we changed it over. – Matt
THE ALIIR ALIIR APPRECIATION SOCIETY
This is my AFL group chat – Aliir Aliir is a player in the NEAFL Sydney Swans team, and we just love him and want the best for him? – Courtney
This is my bestie high school chat. We realised all ever spoke about was our body functions, embarrassing situations, or our crushes. – Dom
GIMME THE PIKOL
I have a group chat literally devoted to pickles. We are only to post in there when we eat a pickle or about pickle related things. I don’t know why pickle is spelt the way it is, but there you go. – Mel
I have a group chat where people talk about what they’ve been doing in the gym and its called ‘Gymcels’ which is an incel joke. – James
GUCCI FLIP FLOPS
My brother has a group chat and the name constantly changes – this one was because someone in the chat bought fake Gucci flip flops and everyone just ripped on him. – Georgia
TWO TOPS AND A BOTTOM
This name was literally because we have two tops and one bottom in that group chat.– Jenna
It’s named after the card in Cards Against Humanity, for no reason. – Kassia
