Your Swagger Sucks (T-Shirt)

Say it repeatedly.

Say it repeatedly.

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of Swagger is…

1: to conduct oneself in an arrogant or superciliously pompous manner ; especially : to walk with an air of overbearing self-confidence

2: boast, brag

Now of course the above description(s) falls in line with some of the essential traits that make for the best MCs. You can’t be a great orator and be shy, after all. However, as the Undrcrwn tee above highlights, “swagger” is overused.

More specifically, folks with minimal swagger keep attempting to convince us they are flush with it. Don’t be fooled.

Let’s get a new word people. Or be doomed to more of this…
