You may know Adam Pally from ABC's Happy Endings (RIP). You may know Adam Pally from FOX's The Mindy Project. You may know Adam Pally from your Jewish summer camp. But no matter where you know him from, it's clear the comedian is always on point. After months of playing Mindy's favorite wingman, Adam starred in The Warp Zone's "Game of Bros" on YouTube. Now a bro expert, Adam stopped by BuzzFeed to tell us what bro lingo REALLY means.

1. Visors

"I think of the old-timey green visors. The old accountants smoking and also numbers."

2. Golf

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"Golf makes me immediately think of rich white people and my favorite rich white person is Bill Clinton."

3. Dave Matthews Band

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"From the age of like 13 to 16, I thought I could have been Dave Matthews."

4. Kanye West

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"Kanye is a god. But he's also dope, so I don't want to spell it a normal way. I want to put a little sauce on it, a little sauce for Kanye. I feel like Kanye and I would be friends. Ya know what I mean? I feel like one of the ones that Kanye and I would get along."

5. Tank tops

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I think both male or female tank tops are egregious. There's going to be side boob and people don't think about that when they put them on."

6. Adidas sandals

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"My cousin Jesse goes to USC [University of Southern California] right now, he's a sophomore, and he wears these all the time and they look like what I assume having gout looks like. That is what is going on at the bottom of that sandal. It's disgusting."

7. EDM

8. Lifting

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"When I was a freshman in college I decided I was going to lift with my friends but I didn't change my diet at all, so I just got really fat and my neck got really thick."

9. Kegs

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"Kegs are just heavy. They're just cumbersome to move. I never had an easy time with a keg, ever. Rolling it or anything. They're a pain in the ass."

10. Cargo shorts

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I think that they get a bad rep. I like cargo shorts. Why not have extra pockets? I don't see what's bad about that."

11. Boating

12. Hooters

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"You're talking to someone who has been to quite a few Hooters and spent a good amount of time there and know that just about the only thing you can eat there are the fried pickles."

13. Boat shoes

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"David Caspe, who created Happy Endings, wears boat shoes every day. I made fun of him endlessly, telling him that I'd never own or wear a pair of boat shoes. This summer I vacationed in the Hamptons and bought three pairs of boat shoes... I'll never wear them. ... I also have old man ankles. I have thin, pasty ankles. It's not a great look sticking out of a shoe. They're, like, purple. They're like your grandpa's ankles. I have like a weird rash that can only be cured by the Dead Sea. Whatever is going on down there is a mess."

14. Tiger Woods

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I believe he picked up a waitress there once?"

15. Weed

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I think weed is a miracle drug that should be given to more people."

16. Tall black socks

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"It just makes me think of the opposite which I assume is short white sandals. Is there such a thing as short white sandals?"

17. Fantasy football leagues

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I have never won a fantasy football league and I've been playing for like 15 years. I always lose money."

18. Taylor Swift

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"She's just a big ole flirt."

19. Florida

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

20. Manscaping

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I don't know if I spelled this right but NECKessary."

21. Neck beard

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"It's just unavoidable for a lot of Jewish men."

22. Nicholas Sparks books

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I made up a word for these. They're called 'aphrodeisals.' Fellas, if you want to get laid give your ladies a Nicholas Sparks book and say that you actually liked it. Hot tip."

23. Tom Brady

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

"I'm a Jets fan, so the fact that I would write this... Tom Brady is the most handsome man on the planet and he's the best quarterback to ever live and that's pretty crazy. John Elway looks like he literally grew up on the sun. Tom Brady is a straight-up God and his wife... and his baby mama before that one... good track record."
