Douchebaggery

I know. A lot of people use the words douchebag and douchebaggery without actually knowing the meaning of these words. Lucky for us, we have a resident online lexicographer (an expert who researches on word meanings online) so we were able to come up with these definitions for you.

From TheFreeDictionary.com:

  1. A stream of water, often containing medicinal or cleansing agents, that is applied to a body part or cavity for hygienic or therapeutic purposes; a stream of air applied in a similar way.

  2. The application of a douche.

  3. An instrument for applying a douche.

We didn’t think this is the meaning that you guys preferred, so we endeavored to find you a more suitable definition.

From UrbanDictionary.com:

The greatest word of all time, simple yet pleasing in its onomatopoeic beauty. For one to commit douchebaggery, he/she is not limited to but may include some or perhaps all of the following behaviors:

  • the wearing of flat-billed baseball caps backwards

  • using an enormous amount of gel to spike the hair porcupine style

  • wearing polo shirts or any other type of shirt with the collar popped, a disgusting gesture that should’ve died in the 1980s with parachute pants

  • the sideways peace sign gesture

  • overdone pursing of the lips

  • too many visits to the tanning salon

  • pointing at oneself, holding up beer cans, or making other obscenely immature gestures in solo or group photos

  • following trends for the sake of fitting in (see “goatee“)

  • adding “The” or the suffix “-ster” to one’s name, as in “The Rickster”

Better? We thought so. If you come up or come across a variant of this definition of douchebaggery (or even douchebag), let us know and maybe we’ll feature it here.
