Bae: /bei/: noun (informal)
Bæ/bae is a Danish word for poop. Also used by people on the Internet who think it means baby, sweetie etc. People were confused about its origin up until 2011 when someone tweeted that the term was an acronym which stood for “before anyone else”.

A small smudge of flour across his cheek and the long familiar fingers gracefully folding the edges of little baked thingies he makes…. Ooh mama! So yes, this morning he tried to surprise me with breakfast in bed and I surprised him by taking him to bed instead!” All four chuckled and Tabassum blew a cheering whistle. They all shared bites of the delicious sandwich that had seen too much, and delved deeper into what had been silently picked as the tiffin topic: ‘When is your bae the sexiest?’
