What does RTFB stand for?

Read the flippin' book


Someone who sends you RTFB really wants you to "read the flippin' book." This acronym is typically used in discussions of reference manuals, literature, and TV shows or movies that were adapted from books.

For example, if a friend asks you what happened to Catelyn Stark in the Game of Thrones books, you could respond by telling them to RTFB. (Of course, you should never tell anyone to read the Game of Thrones books, as doing so sets them up for inevitable disappointment.)
