Humble, it means humble!

This won't turn into another GIF (hard G) vs GIF (soft G) battle but it comes as a big surprise to me, just like the soft G did when I first heard of this variation years and years ago. Thankfully, after Buzzfeed started the "debate" between humble and honest in "imho," Alexis Madrigal swooped in with historical proof with a 1986 PC Magazine glossary and in 1993's Jargon by Robin Williams.

This little acronym, IMHO, stands for in my humble opinion. It's often used as a typing shortcut in online communication. When it is capitalized, you are shouting. You might also see the term imnsho, which stands for in my not-so-humble opinion.
