Dear 100 Hour Board,

Um, excuse me. What does 'props' mean? Whence does it derive?

A: Dear Truly Nolen Yours,

Props, assuming you are not referring to items used on stage, is actually short for propers which is short for proper respects. So, to give props is to give proper respect, acclaimr, kudos, or congratulations to.
