The term "Bastard" in the I.O.O.B. is not intended to question either one's age or parentage. You see, some I.O.O.B. members have difficulty in expressing positive feelings and emotions to each other. So, the expression we can safely use that is nearest to having something positive to say about another is "BASTARD". BASTARD is regarded as a term of great endearment, as in "How are you, you old bastard?" Do not be offended if someone refers to you as an Old Bastard. Just smile and accept the compliment as it was indended.
There are exceptions as in "You stupid bastard."
They key word to look for is "Old". If "Old" isn't in the phrase... well, rather than go through a long list of phrases..
You may want to reflect on the "Old" adage...
When in doubt - knock em out!!!
