Swag's untimely death..

The word swagger is officially dead.

Let us look into what caused this..

First the definition..

swag⋅ger   [swag-er]
–verb (used without object)
1. to walk or strut with a defiant or insolent air.
2. to boast or brag noisily.
–verb (used with object)
3. to bring, drive, force, etc., by blustering.
4. swaggering manner, conduct, or walk; ostentatious display of arrogance and conceit.

The word was first recorded in one of shakespears many plays "Midsummer Nights Dream"

Throughout the years, its been known for people of high calibur or a those who had a certain status to mention or have "swagger." The cool guys who strut the streets in there suits and top hats were the ones ppl noted as "having swagger." Seems like now and days..the word has lost its meaning.

Why has everyone..and I DO MEAN EVERYONE started saying and mentioning the word swag? I mean..the word sounds cool and all..but its lost all of its substance. Being said by those who just say it to "say it."

There is a freedom of speech that has been given to everyone..and everyone has the right to say what they damm sure please..but in some cases, you should know when and where to voice your opinion, or say what you want. There is a time and a place for everything. If you mention the word "swag" in your everyday when your talking to your parents, or on the phone with someone who may be just like are taking away the substance. All of you who went out and made songs about it..just make sure the beat go hard...because if your relying on your content about "swag" to save you...IT WONT WORK.

So to all of you who may love this word for what it is..and what it was..and its "coolness"...please note the following..
