I realize that кароч is related to the answers given to What does “короче” mean?, but what about с др кароч? I've seen it in the title of Youtube videos where people talk for a short time, and on "image macros".

    с др means "с днем рожденья" (Happy Birthday) – Artemix Dec 17 '14 at 8:08
  • It means that Dr. Imre Kertesz (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imre_Kert%C3%A9sz, pronounced in Russian as Кароч) was involved in the filming. Just kidding. – Qwerty Jan 6 '15 at 11:56

ДР means день рождения (birthday)
с др (c днём рождения) - happy birthday

  • Thank you. Does "кароч" just make it sound "cooler" for teens? – screener Dec 17 '14 at 8:24

    @screener I am not sure about "cooler", but it apparently makes the phrase very informal. – Dmitriy Dec 17 '14 at 8:35

    "кароч" = "короче", this word is used to point you want to shorteh conversation and now will speak only on topic so it can be translated as "well, happy birthday". About "короче" see here absurdopedia.net/wiki/%D0%9A%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%BE%D1%87%D0%B5 – Dmitry Ilukhin Dec 17 '14 at 8:43

    Кароч tries to mimic yob phonetics. Think Nah as opposed to No. I'd loosely translate is as: 'kay, I mean -- have a good one, man. 'Make it sound "cooler" for teens' is certainly one way of putting it. – Avi Gordon Dec 17 '14 at 15:02

It's like "HB though", where HB stands for Happy Birthday

i suppose that с др кароч beginning from social web вконтакте. you have smb in friend-list there, so you see notice that today is др of this person. but you don't know him\her good enough to know what smb would like to see from you. or you just wouldn't like to write and think a long wishes to him. so tengeers wrote с др кароч. now it's funny mem.

"Короче говоря, с днём рождения."

др - распространённое сокращение от день рождения. кароч - короче говоря. (В устной речи - распространённое слово-паразит.)

Не следует пользоваться сокращением "кароч", потому что это разговорное слово низкоинтеллектуальных подростков. Сокращение "др" не особенно вежливо, им не следует пользоваться для поздравления собеседника.
